Twenty-nine years ago, the Alice Paul Center and GSWS Program hosted Anita Hill in her first public talk after the Clarence Thomas confirmation hearings. In October 2018 Professor Hill returned to Penn at yet another historic moment in the movement against sexual harassment and sexual assault: Christine Blasey Ford's courageous testimony at the confirmation hearings of Brett Kavanaugh. 

Join us for a special screening of Sexual Harassment from Congressional Testimony to the #MeToo Movement where Anita Hill and Kimberlé Crenshaw discussed the historical context for and current movements against sexual harassment. With Penn’s own Dorothy Roberts who acted as moderator, the event brought together three of the most distinguished gender, race and legal scholars.
