About the film:
In a half-changed world, women often feel they need to choose: mothering or working? Your children’s well-being or your own? Who Does She Think She Is?, a documentary by Academy Award winning filmmaker Pamela Tanner Boll, features five fierce women who 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. The film invites us to consider both ancient legacies of women worshipped as cultural muses and more modern times where most people can’t even name a handful of female artists.

* October is DOMESTIC VIOLENCE Awareness Month

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, and ISU has a campus resource, Project Hope, for those experiencing domestic violence.

If you or someone you know has been the victim of Domestic/Relationship Violence, please contact Project Hope at 282-HOPE (4673) or stop by the Project Hope office, located on the second floor of the Student Health Center.

Domestic/Relationship Violence is physical, sexual, emotional, and/or verbal mistreatment for the purpose of gaining power and control over an intimate partner. Violence can occur within a number of relationships: marriages, dating relationships, friends, roommates, and same-sex partnerships. Domestic/Relationship Violence can include put-downs, name-calling, intimidation, threats, hitting, strangulation, punching, slapping, and forced sexual acts.

During a crisis, victims may seek assistance from family, friends, co-workers, and university faculty and staff. Project Hope is here to support you in providing assistance to the victim. If you refer someone to Project Hope, we encourage you to accompany the victim to our office. Trained advocates are available in the office daily to meet with family, friends, co-workers, university faculty/staff, and victims.
