Public Lecture Description:
In 1991, the Senate confirmation hearings for Clarence Thomas, nominated to the U.S. Supreme Court, sparked nation-wide conversations regarding gender representation, sexual harassment, and race. Anita Hill testified about Thomas' inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace when he served as Assistant Secretary for Civil Rights in the Department of Education and Chair of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. Her testimony before a television audience of 22 million put the issues of sexual harassment on the national agenda. In her lecture, she will explore the impact of the hearing, including the legal developments, and related issues of credibility, consent, agency, and the interplay of culture, race, class, gender, and sexuality.
