In 1991, Anita Hill, a law professor, dropped a bombshell into the middle of Senate Supreme Court confirmation hearings for Clarence Thomas: Thomas had, Hill alleged, harassed and embarrassed her with repeated requests for dates and discussions about pornography while supervising her at the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. Hill's allegations introduced a volatile mix of sex, race, and scandal into the proceedings, deeply dividing both the Senate and the entire country. The aftermath of the Thomas hearings saw plenty of books about Anita Hill--some supporting her, others attacking--but Hill remained silent... until now. In Speaking Truth to Power, Anita Hill finally sets the record straight.
Though much of the book details her side of the story and her professional relationship with Clarence Thomas, Speaking Truth to Power also provides interesting glimpses into Anita Hill, the person. From her early life as the youngest of 13 children on a farm in Oklahoma to her current position as a law professor, Hill offers details about her personal life and her motivations. Hill writes with forthright conviction; in this case of he said/she said, Speaking Truth to Power tilts the scales a little more heavily in Anita Hill's favor. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

That was 1991. I went looking for this book before Christmas to give to my daughter because she and I were discussing the “culture” of today prompted by the action of Charlie Rose and Trump etc. I had so hoped Hill’s sacrifice to prevent such a flawed person as Thomas becoming judge would have changed other work spaces.
But I was also reminded that Hill had waited years before she brought Thomas’s behaviour to light. She tried. Evil must be named, pointed out, challenged.
