Event description
Cleveland Public Library welcomes Anita Hill as part of our Writers & Readers signature author series

About this event

Nearly 30 years before the #MeToo movement, Anita Hill appeared before Congress during confirmation hearings for Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas. Her courageous testimony of the sexual harassment did not stop Thomas’ appointment but it did change the conversation around sexual harassment, empower others to step forward, and spur wider discussions about gender-based violence. Believing is a manifesto about the origins and course of gender violence in our society; a combination of memoir, personal accounts, law, and social analysis, and a powerful call to arms from one of our most prominent and poised survivors.

Please note: this event is presented as a live event via Zoom. Recordings of the event will not be available.

Expand the conversation by joining us for an interactive workshop, Beyond Gender Stereotypes: The Path to Authenticity and Equity for Everyone , on Wednesday, May 25 from 4 - 6pm.

Plexus LGBT & Allied Chamber of Commerce Executive Director, Amanda Cole, leads an interactive, online workshop designed to extend and expand the conversation begun at our Writers & Readers event featuring Anita Hill.

Explore the intersection of gender stereotypes and gender-based violence and the ways that they spawn homophobia and transphobia against LGBTQ+ individuals or those perceived to be LGBTQ+. Discover tools we can all use to help support a shift to societal "rules" and norms that create healthier and more equitable spaces for everyone.
