FROM SOCIAL MOVEMENT TO SOCIAL IMPACT: PUTTING AN END TO SEXUAL HARASSMENT IN THE WORKPLACE
Twenty-six years before the #metoo movement, Hill sparked a national conversation about sexual harassment in the workplace when she testified at the Supreme Court confirmation hearings for Clarence Thomas in 1991. Her bravery empowered thousands of women to bring forth their own sexual harassment lawsuits and helped revolutionize the treatment of women in the workplace. Now, with remarkable insight and candor, she reflects on events before, during, and after those hearings. For the first time, she gives a complete account that sheds startling new light on this watershed event.
