Anita Hill testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee in 1991 about the sexual harassment she experienced at the hands of Clarence Thomas, who was nominated for a spot on the United States Supreme Court. Her testimony was electric, not just because she was a woman testifying in front of the Judiciary Committee at a Supreme Court confirmation hearing, but also because of the graphic nature of the harassment allegedly committed by a Supreme Court nominee. Despite Thomas’ confirmation, Anita Hill has left a massive impact on the subject of gender-based violence and harassment.
In her new book, Believing: Our Thirty-Year Journey to End Gender Violence, Anita Hill makes it clear that while we might have advanced, our progress is slow. As a Professor of Law at Brandeis University, Hill offers insights on the subject of gender violence from a personal perspective, bracketed by social and legal analysis. She is a most compelling advocate, and 30 years later, is still a lightning rod on the subject of sexual harassment.
