She rose to stardom in 2010 after winning the Vietnam Television song and album of the year awards. Several years later she became increasingly uncomfortable having to submit her work to government censors and, thinking she could reform the system from within, nominated herself to run in the National Assembly elections on a pro-democracy platform. Her campaign sparked a nationwide debate about political participation. Today, she leads efforts to promote freedom of artistic expression in Vietnam for which she was awarded the Vaclav Havel International Prize for Creative Dissent. Khoi has released eight albums and has toured the US, Europe, Australia and Taiwan. Her activism has, however, come at a high price and it is no longer safe for her to live in Vietnam. Khoi is currently an Artist Protection Fund Fellow at City of Asylum and the University of Pittsburgh where she continues her work. Mai Khoi’s Bad Activist is an autobiographical performance piece, combining storytelling with state-of-the-art music performance. The narrative charts the extraordinary trajectory of Mai Khoi’s life—from renowned to Vietnamese pop star to dissident activist, fighting for artistic freedom in Vietnam and pitting herself against the strong arm of the communist government. Within this crucible of political titans, international powers, and constant surveillance and threat, Khoi develops a personal and unique art form. Her new sound is rooted in forgotten Vietnamese musical traditions fused with jazz and ripe with political song lyrics. Bad Activist explores both the actual historic events of the artist’s life, as well as the subconscious dream worlds that have fueled her work. .Event page: http://www.chatham.edu/events/details.cfm?eventID=30436 Eddy Theater Jessie Ramey jramey@chatham.edu

Women are disproportionately asked and expected to do this “non-promotable work,” which leaves them overcommitted and underutilized as companies forfeit revenue, productivity, and top talent. But it doesn’t have to be this way. Brenda Peyser, Lise Vesterlund and Laurie Weingart will discuss how to identify non-promotable tasks, help you learn how to make small, yet significant, changes to your workload, and make savvy decisions about the work you take on. They’ll also discuss how organizations can change the way they assign and reward work to level the playing field. Brenda Peyser held corporate and academic leadership positions, most recently at Carnegie Mellon, where she served as associate dean at the Heinz College. Lise Vesterlund is a professor of economics at the University of Pittsburgh and director of the Pittsburgh Experimental Economics Laboratory and the Behavioral Economic Design Initiative. Laurie Weingart is a professor of organizational behavior at Carnegie Mellon and served as chief academic officer (interim) and as senior associate dean at the Tepper School of Business.

In the spring of 1972, police raided an apartment on the South Side of Chicago where seven women who were part of a clandestine network were arrested and charged. Using code names, fronts, and safe houses to protect themselves and their work, the accused had built an underground service for women seeking safe, affordable, illegal abortions. They called themselves "Jane." Directed by Oscar-nominee Tia Lessin (HBO’s Trouble the Water) and Emmy-nominee Emma Pildes (HBO’s Jane Fonda in Five Acts), The Janes offers first-hand accounts from the women at the center of the group, many speaking on the record for the first time. The Janes tells the story of a group of unlikely outlaws. Defying the state legislature that outlawed abortion, the Catholic Church that condemned it, and the Chicago Mob that was profiting from it, the members of Jane risked their personal and professional lives to help women in need. In the pre-Roe v. Wade era –– a time when abortion was a crime in most states and even circulating information about abortion was a felony in Illinois –– the Janes provided low-cost and free abortions to an estimated 11,000 women. Just Films is a collaboration of six organizations in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania committed to women, girls, gender equity, and social justice: Black Women’s Policy Center, Chatham University Art & Design Department and Women’s Institute, NCJW Moms Work, Women and Girls Foundation, Women’s Law Project, and YWCA Greater Pittsburgh. We believe in the power of film to promote conversations about social, political, and economic change. We also believe in engaging the community broadly and deeply in dialogue as we pursue equality together. .Event page: http://www.chatham.edu/events/details.cfm?eventID=30431 Eddy Theater Jessie Ramey jramey@chatham.edu

The Great American Lie is a documentary film that examines how a US value system built on the extreme masculine ideals of money, power and control has glorified individualism, institutionalized inequality, and undermined the ability of most Americans to achieve the American Dream. The main topic of this film is arguably one of the most important issues of our time: social and economic immobility. Inequality has been on the rise in America for more than three decades. Middle and low income wages have remained stagnant or decreased while top earners have seen their wages increase 135% since 1979. Today, the top .1% of Americans owns almost as much wealth as the bottom 90%. This film is incredibly timely because of the staggering state of inequality today, but this film is also important because it is new. By bringing the unique perspective of gender to this story, this film expands the conversation around the causes and solutions to America's inequality and division. With our history and experience in illuminating and challenging limiting gender narratives in our society, our documentary team is uniquely qualified to tell this story. .Event page: http://www.chatham.edu/events/details.cfm?eventID=30434 Eddy Theater Jessie Ramey jramey@chatham.edu
