Anita Hill is an attorney and Professor of Social Policy, Law, and Women’s Studies at Brandeis. You may have heard of her, or you may be completely unaware of her unplanned contributions to third wave feminism. In 1991, Professor Hill was teaching at the OU School of Law when she was called to testify in confirmation hearings of the US Supreme Court nominee, Clarence Thomas. She made the term ‘sexual harassment’ a household word. As people across the country watched the committee of all male senators question her – sometimes belligerently, sometimes condescendingly – Professor Hill maintained her composure and explained to the nation what it’s like to be sexually harassed and have no power to stop it. Women took note and realized they were not alone in the all too common practice of employment discrimination and sexual harassment. Activism developed from these hearings and encouraged women to run for office, file harassment lawsuits, and empower girls and women from undeserved areas.
