This event has ended.

This exhibition of 56 stunning prints by leading documentary photographers addresses current public policies on education, health care, housing, and incarceration sustain poverty in the U.S. By displaying photographs of women who occupy "reviled categories" – women too young, too poor, too gay, too disabled, too foreign, to be "legitimate mothers" – these images show women being mothers, with strength, dignity and determination, to stimulate new thinking about motherhood, public policy, media, and politics. The exhibition is accompanied by two photo-based books and "voice-text" panels with statements by the photographed subjects.
