This documentary from award-winning filmmaker Frieda Lee Mock examines the legacy of Anita Hill more than 20 years after her attempt to report Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas for sexual harassment. The story made headlines and history when Hill, in 1991, sat before the Senate Judiciary Committee and gave her testimony in regards to being subjected to lewd behavior by her superior, and continues to influence sexual dynamics and gender politics in the modern workplace.
