He’s responsible for his handling of the Anita Hill testimony and those who tried to corroborate her.
Since Anita Hill's testimony, companies and their employees have looked to Human Resources departments to prevent workplace sexual harassment. In a video for @NBCNewsTHINK , @CaitlinPacific explains why that approach doesn't always work:
#OTD in 1991, testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Anita Hill accused Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas of sexually harassing her; Thomas re-appeared before the panel to denounce the proceedings as a "high-tech lynching."
#OTD Congress OK's U.S. military force against Iraq; Former Pres. Jimmy Carter wins Nobel Peace Prize; Anita Hill accuses Supreme Court pick Clarence Thomas; Second Vatican Council opens; 'SNL' premieres.
Both Professor Anita Hill and Judge Clarence Thomas were sworn in and gave testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee today in 1991. Ms. Hill detailed sexual harassment by Judge Thomas while Thomas denied the allegations.
This movement to root out harassment and assault started with Anita Hill. We owe her a debt of gratitude. Our culture is finally catching up. Thank you, Anita, for your courage.
