WomenCount PAC Screening of “Anita”

August 12, 2014 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


A special screening of the documentary, “Anita: Speaking Truth to Power,” a new film about the extraordinary and historic Anita Hill hearings in 1991.

Date: Tues., Aug. 12th
Time: 7 p.m.
Location: Aquarius Theater in Palo Alto
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.
I am hosting the screening with WomenCount PAC. You can see a preview of the film and purchase tickets at this link:
