Twenty-eight years ago, the Alice Paul Center and GSWS Program hosted Anita Hill in her first public talk after the Clarence Thomas confirmation hearings. 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. Together with Kimberlé Crenshaw, who was a member of Hill's legal team for the hearings, the discussion ranged from the historical roots of the sexual exploitation of black women, what has changed and what has remained the same since 1991, and sexual harasment in the academy. Sexual Harassment from Congressional Testimony to the #MeToo Movement was moderated by Penn's own Dorothy Roberts
