The Gender/Race Imperative: The Future of Title IX
It's been 26 years since Anita Hill testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee that Supreme Court Justice nominee Clarence Thomas had sexually harassed her when he was her boss. Today, Thomas sits on the Supreme Court bench.
In light of the allegations against Harvey Weinstein and other powerful men in the media and government, Hill participated in CNN's town hall titled "Tipping Point: Sexual Harassment in America."
Hill said that the strong focus on sexual misconduct is like nothing she's ever seen and she's hopeful that it will "bring lasting change." She also stated that, although the believability factor needs to shift in all sexual misconduct cases, marginalized groups are met with an additional level of skepticism.
