It was a watershed moment in American history that ushered in a new era of openness about sexual misconduct in the workplace. And it was no coincidence that the following year saw the largest increase in the number of women elected to Congress than ever before or since; indeed, the election of 1992 became known as “The Year of the Woman.”
“Anita,” directed by Academy Award-winning filmmaker Freida Mock, offers a rare glimpse into those memorable hearings and includes current interviews with Anita Hill, now a professor of law and women’s studies at Brandeis University. The reviews have been great.
It should be an interesting night. Hope you can join me! And feel free to forward this e-mail to family and friends.
