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.

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.

By limiting herself to an actor, a painter, sculptors, and a printmaker, Boll gives herself plenty to work with; when the stories drag, and they occasionally do, the art's there to inspire and uplift.
