Editorial Reviews

Product Description

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."

Review

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

Immensely revealing and unforgettable. The ultimate in nonfiction television. --The New York Times

The powerfully edited heart of three days that changed the nation. This film will surprise those who think they remember it all - and amaze others. --Ms. Magazine

This case was huge. Anita Hill had courage rarely found in anyone these days. The courage to stand up in spite of a process that doesn't support, value or believe you. When watching this I watched Anita's face to see indications of deception, there were none. I believe Anita Hill and I believe that Thomas not watching her testimony was a deliberate legal strategy to avoid specific questions about her testimony. The character witnesses for judge Thomas were Hispanic or Black and and gave vague characterizations about their boss. The witnesses for Anita told of specific dates on which Anita had told them of the harassment, all long before the confirmation hearings. Senator Specter's behavior was appalling. He would ask convoluted questions in an attempt to get a contradictory answer. Thomas' own inclusion of the black male sexual stereotype, probably did more to indict him than anything else, and it was absolutely ridiculous, the panel was obviously uncomfortable. Senator Kennedy was one of the few voices willing to stand up for what was obviously the truth. She passed a polygraph, and had absolutely nothing to gain by making the allegations known. I'm glad we have come so much farther in this country. Hats off to Anita Hill, she's a real American shero.

We should all be required to go back and watch this. Anita Hill was poised, truthful and brave. The hearings and her testimony brought sexual harassment into the public arena and made it a legitimate issue. It's heartening to see so many more workplace policies and trainings in place today because of it.

Excellent! A must see as to how women where treated then and unfortunately, are still disrespected by many in the workplace today. This event exposed "sexual harassment" which was constant in the workplace for years before Anita Hill testified. I am grateful she did because I could relate to her considering I too was sexually harassed for years. It is telling how Anita Hill became the villain and Thomas became the victim with an all white male committee. Senator Kennedy certainly stepped up supporting Anita Hill's testimony while other Senators were on the fence or made her the issue rather than Thomas. No doubt she was poorly treated by the GOP. As Kennedy said, "Shame" on the GOP committee members for their character assassination of Anita Hill. The she said - he said opened up Pandora's box to create change for women in the workplace - historical. Thank you Anita Hill for your honesty, courage and dignity. I believed her then and to this day I believe Anita Hill.
