Debora L. Spar
In her national bestseller - hailed by such luminaries as Sheryl Sandberg, Tina Brown, and Erica Jong - Barnard President and former Harvard Business School Professor Debora L. Spar looks at why, fifty years after the Equal Pay Act, women are still living in a man’s world. Armed with reams of new research, she examines how women’s lives have—and have not—changed over the past forty years. In this wise, often funny, always human, and smartly conceived book, Spar asks: How far have women really come? And what will it take to get true equality for good? Wonder Women gives us an important voice in an increasingly heated debate. Don’t miss hearing from Dr. Spar on this critical issue for women… and for all us navigating today’s world. The Music Hall’s community partner for the event is the New Hampshire Women’s Initiative.

About Innovation and Leadership
In this Age of Participation, The Music Hall expands on the lively and informative conversations around issues that are part of its celebrated Film Matters Series with a new program Innovation and Leadership. The program sprang from the creation of Digital Portsmouth, the popular Music Hall gathering that brings together the best and the brightest of the Seacoast’s e-coast on a quarterly basis with presentations on the art of all things digital combined with social networking. Other Forums feature local and regional leaders talking about sustainability, innovation, mindfulness, and leadership in the casual chic setting of the Music Hall Loft. Larger events with national and international thought-leaders and authors will be hosted in the Historic Theater. The Music Hall is committed to community building and personal flourishing and Innovation and Leadership are part of that commitment.
