Anita Hill is an advocate for equality and civil rights, as well as the author of Reimaging Equality and Speaking Truth to Power. She is a professor of social policy, law, and women’s studies at Brandeis University, and raised awareness nationwide on the issue of sexual harassment. Due to her efforts, Congress passed a law that allowed sexual harassment victims to seek damage awards as well as back pay and reinstatement. Professor Hill’s commentary has been published in TIME, Newsweek, The New York Times, The Boston Globe, and Ms. Magazine. She has appeared on national television programs including Good Morning America, Meet the Press, The Today Show, The Tavis Smiley Show, and Larry King Live. In April of 2016, HBO Films released Confirmation , which depicted the explosive 1991 Clarence Thomas Supreme Court nomination hearings where Anita Hill accused him of sexual harassment. The hearings brought the country to a standstill and became a pivotal moment in American culture forever changing how we perceive and experience workplace equality and gender politics.
