This installment examines the most basic elements of an event that changed the lives of American women. It captivated millions of viewers; it was talked about by millions more. It was the era before the internet, but came about courtesy of cable TV. Anita Hill and her testimony during the Clarence Thomas confirmation hearings riveted the nation.
Let’s hope that the writers of herstory include as many paragraphs as possible about the courage and message of Anita Hill when she took the stand to testify as a witness in Washington, D.C. In October 1991, Professor Hill appeared before the Senate Judiciary Committee in opposition to the nomination of Clarence Thomas to the U.S. Supreme Court.
