Throughout art history, woman have always had to overcome many obstacles to have there work seen and respected. There was a belief that females artists who chose to have children, couldn't also pursue a career as an artist. Themes of domestic life where often shunned and not regarded as important or "high brow" art. The truth is artist/mothers have always been around, and have fought to have their voices heard and their truths represented in the art world. They have compromised, adapted and multitasked their way into recognition, while running the household, raising the kids and working to support their families and careers.
Mother May I explores themes of gender roles, family, struggle, and identity.
