Kicking Off the UCSB Feminist Futures Initiative
From Social Movement to Social Impact:
Putting an End to Sexual Harassment (2019/2020 Lectures)
“Hill was transformed into a symbol and catalyst for the #MeToo movement in support of sexual-harassment victims, decades before it had a name.” The New Yorker
A women’s rights icon, attorney and powerful advocate for equality, Anita Hill brought the issue of sexual harassment to the forefront of our national conversation 28 years ago in her testimony during the Supreme Court confirmation hearings of Judge Clarence Thomas. Hill’s bravery empowered women from all walks of life to fight sexual harassment and helped foster equality for women in the workplace. Hill finds echoes in the #MeToo movement, Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court confirmation hearings and today’s volatile social and political climate. A professor at Brandeis University, Hill continues to inspire others to speak truth to power in order to foster true change.
