Anita Hill is a lawyer, educator, and the author of "Believing: Our Thirty-Year Journey to End Gender Violence." (Celeste Sloman)

It's been 30 years since Anita Hill testified before an all-male Senate Judiciary Committee during Clarence Thomas's Supreme Court confirmation hearing, describing how he sexually harassed her in the workplace. Anita Hill joins us to reflect on that experience, which she says laid bare the systemic faults in a confirmation process that still casts doubt on the credibility of women, and to talk about her new book "Believing: Our Thirty-Year Journey to End Gender Violence."


Anita Hill, professor of social policy, law, and women's, gender and sexuality studies, Brandeis University. Her new book is "Believing: Our Thirty Year Journey to End Gender Violence."
