Anita Hill was a young law professor in 1991 when the Senate Judiciary Committee invited her to testify about the behavior of then-Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas. Hill shared a difficult story of sexual harassment by her former boss, but the all-male committee was hostile in its interrogation and Hill was publically attacked for being a liar and a man-hater. Friday we're rebroadcasting a conversation with Anita Hill and filmmaker Freida Mock about the documentary called Anita and about how Hill's experience changed gender politics in America.
