Anita Hill is an American lawyer and a professor at Brandeis University, where she teaches social policy, law, and women’s studies. In 1991, she accused Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas of sexual harassment while he was her supervisor at the U.S. Department of Education and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. Despite Hill’s accusations, the U.S. Senate confirmed Thomas to the Supreme Court. The controversy brought several long-term consequences, including national awareness about sexual harassment in the workplace and an increased involvement of women in politics.
