Anita Hill

Anita Faye Hill (born July 30, 1956) is an American attorney and academic, currently a professor of social policy, law and women's studies at Brandeis University's Heller School for Social Policy and Management. She became a national figure in 1991 when she alleged that U.S. Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas had made harassing sexual statements when he was her supervisor at the U.S. Department of Education and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. Though Thomas was confirmed and took a seat on the Court, Hill's testimony focused national attention on the issue of workplace sexual harassment.

Famous quotes containing the word hill:

    What was dancing to you then?
    We went from the high gate away
    To a black hill the other side of men
    Where one wild stag stared
    At the going day.
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)
