[Currentcse] Fw: Kennedy Lecture Series Welcomes: Anita Hill

This is a very special opportunity to hear from Anita Hill. Her experience happened quite a few years ago when the Supreme Court nominee, Clarence Thomas, was being confirmed. Just like what happened with Justice Kavanaugh a year ago where he was accused of sexual assault, so Anita Hill also spoke up and testified against Justice Thomas. Both individuals were Black and so there was an added dimension of racism involved as well. It was brutal for her, just as it was for this recent experience.

This is a free event, but will probably be really full -- so if you want to go be sure to get there early. It's this Monday. And for those of you who identify as female, this issue WILL impact your career, whatever that is. And if you identify as male, then you/we have a responsibility to interrupt this pattern of misogyny and sexual harassment in our places of work.

Anita Hill, J.D. "From Social Movement To Social Impact"<https://youtu.be/Sp87PQqb8i4>
Ohio University's Kennedy Lecture Series Presents "From Social Movement To Social Impact; Putting an End to Sexual Harassment in the Workplace" Anita Hill, J.D.

Anita Hill is University Professor of Social Policy, Law, and Women's, Gender and Sexuality Studies at Brandeis University. She is a women's rights icon and the chair of the Commission on Sexual Harassment and Advancing Equality in the Workplace, which the entertainment industry formed in response to the #MeToo movement.

In 1991 at the Senate Judiciary confirmation hearing for Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, Ms. Hill courageously testified that Justice Thomas had sexually harassed her.

In the process she inspired a generation of activists to fight sexual harassment and the unequal treatment of women. Anita speaks about how to end sexual harassment by creating positive change within organizations. She offers powerful insight into how women can defend their rights to equal opportunity, and help foster organizational cultures that uphold respect for women and human dignity.

OHIO’s Kennedy Lecture Series was established in 1962 by a gift from OHIO alumni and stalwart supporters Edwin L. and Ruth Kennedy. The Kennedy Lecture Series aims to bring speakers who appeal to a broad cross-section of the OHIO community to the Athens Campus to discuss significant issues in American life.
