Twenty years after a law professor publicly accused Supreme Court Justice nominee Clarence Thomas of sexual harassment, Anita Hill spoke about her experience and her life since her testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Hill was the keynote speaker at the "Sex, Power and Speaking Truth" conference at New York City's Hunter College today.
Members of Congress, journalists and scholars are among the people who sat on various panels discussing what happened at the Thomas confirmation hearing in 1991 and how Hill's testimony has altered the issue of sexual harassment in the workplace. Anita Hill is now a law professor at Brandeis University and the Author of "Reimagining Equality: Stories of Gender, Race and Finding Home."
C-SPAN provided coverage of the following panels (all times ET):
Panel 1: What Happened?
Panel 2: What Does Anita Hill Mean to You?
Keynote Address: Anita Hill
Panel 3: What Have We Learned in 20 Years And What Comes Next?
