In 1991, Anita Hill’s courageous testimony during Supreme Court
nominee Clarence Thomas’ confirmation hearings before the Senate Judiciary
Committee sparked a national conversation on sexual harassment and women’s
equality in politics and the workplace. She detailed this experience in her book
Truth to Power. Today she writes compellingly about the historic plight of women
and about gender equality, particularly the many burdens that women, black and
white, face in their everyday lives. In her new book, Reimagining Equality, she
reminds us that we still have to come to grips with issues of race and gender, and
that we need to reimagine the question of equality for all.
On January 19, 2013, the documentary, Anita, received its world premiere
at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah, to a sold-out audience for all four of
its screenings. The coverage for the film has been explosive. The film reminds us of
the credit we owe Hill for bringing workplace sexual harassment to public attention.
