Anita Hill came to national prominence in the wake of accusations of sexual assault she leveled against Clarence Thomas, then a federal circuit judge.
She said Thomas had sexually harassed her while he was her supervisor at the Department of Education and the EEOC.
In spite of her accusations, Clarence Thomas was confirmed to the Supreme Court by the United States Senate by a vote of 52–48.
Hill now works as a professor of law, social policy, and women’s studies at Brandeis University and is a member of the faculty of Heller School for Social Policy and Management.
She earned her Juris Doctor (JD) from Yale Law School and a degree in psychology from Oklahoma University.
