Wade more than four decades ago, the self-labeled “pro-life” movement has won significant cultural, political and legal battles. Now, the stigma of abortion is prolific in Mississippi and women in poverty and women of color are particularly vulnerable. Jackson is wrought with the racial and religious undertones of the Deep South and explores the nuanced nature of abortion in America’s Bible Belt. Shannon Brewer is the director of Jackson Women’s Health Organization, the only remaining abortion clinic in the state. Barbara Beaver runs the Center for Pregnancy Choices and is a leader of the anti-abortion movement in Mississippi. April Jackson is a young mother of four children faced with another unplanned pregnancy. Jackson is an intimate, unprecedented look at the lives of three women caught up in the complex issues surrounding abortion access. \u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\"p1\"\u003e\u003cspan class=\"s1\"\u003eSet against the backdrop of the fight to close the last abortion clinic in Mississippi, \u003ci\u003eJackson\u003c\/i\u003e captures the essential and hard truth of the lives at the center of the debate over reproductive healthcare in America.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eFestival Awards \u0026amp;

Now, the stigma of abortion is prolific in Mississippi and women in poverty and women of color are particularly vulnerable. Jackson is wrought with the racial and religious undertones of the Deep South and explores the nuanced nature of abortion in America’s Bible Belt. Shannon Brewer is the director of Jackson Women’s Health Organization, the only remaining abortion clinic in the state. Barbara Beaver runs the Center for Pregnancy Choices and is a leader of the anti-abortion movement in Mississippi. April Jackson is a young mother of four children faced with another unplanned pregnancy. Jackson is an intimate, unprecedented look at the lives of three women caught up in the complex issues surrounding abortion access. \u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\"p1\"\u003e\u003cspan class=\"s1\"\u003eSet against the backdrop of the fight to close the last abortion clinic in Mississippi, \u003ci\u003eJackson\u003c\/i\u003e captures the essential and hard truth of the lives at the center of the debate over reproductive healthcare in America.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eFestival Awards \u0026amp;

Ritu is sophisticated and well-educated, with a successful career in Mumbai, but she agrees to marry under pressure from her mother Seema. Amrita enjoys a freewheeling lifestyle in Delhi but consents to wed—in spite of the fact that the match will force her to move to a remote area—because her intended will allow her to continue to work outside the home. Thirty-year-old Dipti, on the other hand, is desperate to find a husband, working with her parents to locate a plausible candidate through all available means—scouring newspaper advertisements and attending events where men present themselves for interviews. After numerous failed attempts leave her in a state of virtual depression, she does succeed.\u003cspan\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\u003cem\u003eA Suitable Girl\u003cspan\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/em\u003edetails the peculiarities involved in selecting a mate—including the comparison of horoscopes to assess compatibility—and emphasizes the fact that financial considerations factor heavily in negotiations (all three women come from reasonably well-to-do families). But the overall emphasis here is on the human costs that traditional marriages continue to have on Indian women, since most will assume a subservient place in the husband’s family, losing whatever freedom they had previously enjoyed. So despite the festive appearance of the wedding scenes at the close, all carry a somber undertone.

Ritu is sophisticated and well-educated, with a successful career in Mumbai, but she agrees to marry under pressure from her mother Seema. Amrita enjoys a freewheeling lifestyle in Delhi but consents to wed—in spite of the fact that the match will force her to move to a remote area—because her intended will allow her to continue to work outside the home. Thirty-year-old Dipti, on the other hand, is desperate to find a husband, working with her parents to locate a plausible candidate through all available means—scouring newspaper advertisements and attending events where men present themselves for interviews. After numerous failed attempts leave her in a state of virtual depression, she does succeed.\u003cspan\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\u003cem\u003eA Suitable Girl\u003cspan\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/em\u003edetails the peculiarities involved in selecting a mate—including the comparison of horoscopes to assess compatibility—and emphasizes the fact that financial considerations factor heavily in negotiations (all three women come from reasonably well-to-do families). But the overall emphasis here is on the human costs that traditional marriages continue to have on Indian women, since most will assume a subservient place in the husband’s family, losing whatever freedom they had previously enjoyed. So despite the festive appearance of the wedding scenes at the close, all carry a somber undertone.

The youngest of seven children, Rahman (born in the 1930s) was always fascinated by art. Her work focuses on her folk designs, and over the years she has re ned domestic kantha embroidery into a fine art, with her pieces in museums worldwide. Today, no longer able to draw, Rahman wants other artists to step forward and work with kantha. VERDICT An inspirational tale of one woman’s artistic journey and how she ultimately helped hundreds if not thousands of women to thrive. Will appeal to those interested in art, design, and culture.  \u003c\/span\u003e\u003cem\u003e– Library Journal, Denise A. Garofalo Mount Saint Mary Coll.

profit. The youngest of seven children, Rahman (born in the 1930s) was always fascinated by art. Her work focuses on her folk designs, and over the years she has re ned domestic kantha embroidery into a fine art, with her pieces in museums worldwide. Today, no longer able to draw, Rahman wants other artists to step forward and work with kantha. VERDICT An inspirational tale of one woman’s artistic journey and how she ultimately helped hundreds if not thousands of women to thrive.

Although two of the artists, Nermine Hammam and Maliheh Afnan, hail from the Middle East, all are based in the United kingdom. In addition to their interviews, Sternberg captures the women at work. Some incorporate their own bodies into pieces, like sculpture Alice Anderson, who puts her dance experience to use in her performance art, which involves wrapping objects with copper wire (which reflects her red hair). “My language,” she says, “is the body.” She also stars in short films with dolls formed in her image. Sculptor Jodie Carey uses blood as a dye, although she doesn’t say how she procures it. She also soaks newspaper in tea and coffee in order to form autumnal flowers. Sarah Lederman’s body serves as a model for her paintings, which feature a fair amount of nudity. Some of the women also talk about children, whether they have them or not. Charlotte Hodes switched from drawing to collage and ceramics, when she had kids, whereas Susan Collins, who runs an art school, doesn’t think she could have found a way to reconcile her work with being a mother. Hammam, who hails from Cairo makes the most explicit political work, digitally situating subjects from recent news stories into stylized settings. Other artists work in calligraphy (Afnan) and steel (Almuth Tebbenhoff). Along the way, connections become evident, such as the way that Carey and Afnan explore the passage of time, even though they are four decades apart in age.

Although two of the artists, Nermine Hammam and Maliheh Afnan, hail from the Middle East, all are based in the United kingdom. In addition to their interviews, Sternberg captures the women at work. Some incorporate their own bodies into pieces, like sculpture Alice Anderson, who puts her dance experience to use in her performance art, which involves wrapping objects with copper wire (which reflects her red hair). “My language,” she says, “is the body.” She also stars in short films with dolls formed in her image. Sculptor Jodie Carey uses blood as a dye, although she doesn’t say how she procures it. She also soaks newspaper in tea and coffee in order to form autumnal flowers. Sarah Lederman’s body serves as a model for her paintings, which feature a fair amount of nudity. Some of the women also talk about children, whether they have them or not. Charlotte Hodes switched from drawing to collage and ceramics, when she had kids, whereas Susan Collins, who runs an art school, doesn’t think she could have found a way to reconcile her work with being a mother. Hammam, who hails from Cairo makes the most explicit political work, digitally situating subjects from recent news stories into stylized settings. Other artists work in calligraphy (Afnan) and steel (Almuth Tebbenhoff). Along the way, connections become evident, such as the way that Carey and Afnan explore the passage of time, even though they are four decades apart in age. An interesting profile of contemporary women artists, this is recommended.\" - \u003cem\u003eVideo Librarian\u003c\/em\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\"p1\"\u003e\u003cstrong\u003e\u003cspan class=\"s1\"\u003eACADEMIC REVIEWS:\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\"p1\"\u003e\u003cspan\u003e\"Each of these artists could have her own short documentary film; all of them are that interesting...\u003c\/span\u003e\u003cspan\u003eI would recommend this film to viewers who like to watch artists working... the amount of finished artwork is highly satisfying visually.\" - \u003c\/span\u003e\u003cem\u003eResources for Gender and\u003c\/em\u003e \u003ci\u003eWomen's Studies: A Feminist Review\u003c\/i\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp class=\"p1\"\u003e**Recommended** “This documentary provides essential first-person accounts to discussions concerning gender, sexuality, motherhood, and societal pressures in the context of expressed art, careers, and personal growth.
