Fascinating Woman is a documentary series of photographs and recordings about Gloria Macklin—a mother of eight, Born Again Catholic, and member of Fascinating Womanhood, a feminist backlash group in the 1960’s. The project explores her journey as a wife and mother and an inadvertent path toward empowerment and leadership, while seemingly rebelling against the Women’s Movement. 1993-1994
