The Story of Anita Hill and Clarence Thomas is indeed a compelling one. I think perhaps the context of the events, combined with the intersectionality of race, class, and gender is what lead this to be a nationwide phenomenon. Countless women identified with Anita Hill at the time that this was happening and still do. The fact that she had graduated from law school and clerked for Judge Thomas before he became a Supreme Court justice is a testament to the fact that women in high level executive and managerial positions experience sexual harassment on a daily basis. Thomas' assertion that this was a high-tech lynching of uppity blacks was completely untrue. it masquerades the larger problem of sexual harassment and assault. Many people claimed that Anita Hill shouldn't have testified against "a brother"--but why not? Race shouldn't be used an excuse for sexual harassment. I'm happy that Anita Hill spoke out, because she made it easier for a generation of women to do the same.

Well presented. Highly recommended. Reminds us all of the importance of speaking out to what's right, the courage it takes, and the generations to come who will benefit.

Riveting!!! Factually accurate, completely holds your attention, does not pull any punches, yet remains sensitive and respectful of Anita Hill.
