ANITA: Speaking Truth to
23 years ago this October, Anita Hill stood up in front of the Senate
Nominating Committee to testify against Supreme Court Justice nominee, Clarence
Thomas. An entire generation has grown up unaware of the event that captured the
nation's attention. Anita Hill, a former employee of Clarence Thomas', revealed
in graphic detail what so many women face in the workplace, and sparked a call
to protect women from sexual harassment.
Prior to the show, moviegoers are invited to a conversation with
Dr. Michele Ramsey, Associate Professor of Communication Arts
& Sciences & Women Studies at Penn State Berks. Dr. Ramsey will speak
about her research on the Hill-Thomas hearings and what they meant for the
country's understanding of sexual harassment.
