Who does she think she is?
Can you name five female artists?
In director Pamela Tanner Boll's new film Who Does She Think She Is?, which opened in New York on October 17th, most people could not name more than a handful of female artists if any.
Why are 80% of art school students women, yet 80% of artists displayed in galleries and museums men?
Does motherhood affect how you create art? Does being a woman impact on how seriously you are taken in the art world?
Watch the trailer and listen to some thought provoking comments about how women as thought of as artists. How many of these comments can you identify with? I know I heard a number of them in my life and related to my work.

You can visit the official site to order a DVD, find local screenings or host a home screening party. The latter sounds like a great idea for local art associations or clubs.
