Who Does She Think She Is?

September 30, 2009

Last night, Who Does She Think She Is? was shown at school, with a discussion to follow with the director. It is a fantastic documentary addressing the strains placed on women artists. It walks through the struggles that women must endure as they balance female duty (motherhood, wifehood, domestic duties) and the creative force within. There is not an easy answer to the questions that occur with this pressure, but the film shares stories of real women who have sacrificed and are passionate about motherhood and being an artist. I was inspired to dream and stretch and press into the questions and fears that come with being a female artist. I highly recommend the documentary to anyone who struggles with the logistics of following a dream and passion while have other responsibilities.
