This film explores women's dilemma with "having it all", and the effects it can have on their happiness.
"Being Superwoman and Everything in Between" is my journey to understanding the dilemma women face with "having it all", and the effects it can have on their happiness. Research has shown that women constantly put themselves under intense scrutiny and pressure, causing them to over perform. In today’s society it’s all about being the perfect wife, the perfect mother, with the perfect career and the perfect body. When did “wanting it all” become such a burden? But is this not what we’ve wanted? Women have been fighting for centuries to not be viewed as just a mother, a wife, a homemaker, or a sexual object. Our goal has always been to have the same responsibilities and the same respect that was given to men. Ultimately all we’ve really wanted was to have a choice. But with choice come more responsibilities, and the desire to succeed; in the end who’s really to blame for our unhappiness? Society, the media, or ourselves?WHAT IS KICKSTARTER?
Kickstarter is a crowd-funding sight that allows artists to raise money for their project, in this case for my documentary film. The money I raise through kickstarter will be used for pre-production and production, so I can kickstart, no pun intended, my film.
HOW DOES THIS WORK?
We only have 40 days to raise the full amount. If our project is not fully funded in those forty days we won't receive any of the money that you've donated, and your card won't be charged a dime.
Also keep in mind that we CAN surpass the amount that we're trying to raise! So if you see we've reached our goal, this does not mean you can no longer donate. Believe me, the more the merrier!
WHO CAN DONATE?
Anyone! Family, friends, strangers, long lost cousins. Anyone who believes in this project can offer a donation. I promise it will be put to good use.

WHAT WILL THE MONEY BE USED FOR?
Making movies can get expensive, especially documentaries. With your help, we'll be able to cover the many costs that come with making a film. The money we raise through kickstarter will go towards:
- Research materials
- Paying and feeding crew
- Equipment and Vehicle Rental
- Travel Expenses
