Anita Hill: Speaking Truth to Power

Anita Hill made sexual harassment a national issue by testifying at the Supreme Court confirmation hearings for Clarence Thomas in 1991. Her bravery empowered thousands of women to bring their own sexual harassment lawsuits and helped revolutionize the treatment of women in the workplace. Today, Ms. Hill continues her mission and trailblazing efforts by fighting for institutional change to increase parity and protection for women and minorities. Ms. Hill is Professor of Social Policy, Law and Women’s Gender and Sexuality Studies at Brandeis University and she also leads the Hollywood Commission on Sexual Harassment and Advancing Equality in the Workplace, composed of leading executives in the entertainment industry. The committee is examining the pattern of sexual abuse in Hollywood that the #MeToo campaign has exposed since Harvey Weinstein was accused of abuse in October 2017.
