Who Does She Think She Is? (2009)
In a half-changed world, women often feel they need to choose: mothering or working? Your children's well-being or your own? Responsibility or self-expression? Five fierce women refuse to choose. Through their lives, we explore some of the most problematic intersections of our time: mothering and creativity, partnering and independence, economics and art.

Critic Reviews for Who Does She Think She Is?
With its playfully pointed use of archival clips and with its subjects' striking talents on display, the well-crafted film celebrates courage.
Rather than creating a work of lament or complaint, the filmmakers embark on a series of feel-good profiles of working women artists -- in such places as Providence, Cambridge, and Taos, N.M. -- who also happen to be mothers.
Can women follow their artis tic instincts and still function as wives and mothers? Pamela Tanner Boll's articulate documentary answers that question with a qualified "Yes."
Who Does She Think She Is? is an engaging documentary about the struggle to create art while nurturing life.
Sometimes strident and combative, and sometimes celebratory and encouraging, uneven pic often feels like a cobbled-together recap of '70s feminist issues, still patently unresolved.
This documentary encapsulates everything that gives feminism a bad name, from whining about patriarchal society to celebrating the goddess within.
The film's clear-eyed view of the art world is tough to argue with, but routes to change in the status quo are beyond the its scope.
An unabashed polemic promoting more female artist exhibitions, and art sales, this film is as entertaining as it is one-sided. Inspiring enough that men, too, might be moved to artistry.
Who Does She Think She Is? shows the daily chaos facing women artists trying to keep pace with families and ambitions, activist politics and personal choices.
Lively and informative documentary makes an estimable contribution to the field of gender studies by arguing that motherhood and art shouldnâ(TM)t be seen as mutually exclusive.
Terrific, engaging and moving documentary about the ongoing conundrum of women in the arts today.
