SEX & JUSTICE presents the dramatic confrontation between Anita Hill and Clarence Thomas at his Supreme Court confirmation hearings before the United States Senate in 1991. Not since the McCarthy hearings of the 1950s has the nation been so riveted with such political passion. Narrated by leading feminist writer Gloria Steinem, SEX & JUSTICE brings back the highlights of those explosive moments. As Ms. Steinem puts it, "The hearings made history and changed history."
Remember 'a high-tech lynching for uppity blacks' and the relish with which Senator Hatch kept repeating 'Long Dong Silver'? SEX & JUSTICE does an admirable job of boiling down the Hill-Thomas hearings while still providing the larger chunks of speech that surround the sensational sound bites. --Entertainment Weekly
