Sexual Harassment and Barriers to Advancement: What Has Changed Since the 1990s?
Thursday, October 16, 2014
Paul Brest Hall
Feminist icon Gloria Steinem once famously remarked that sexual harassment didn\u2019t have a name when she was young \u2013 "it was," she said "just life." That was before the revelations brought forward by a young Oklahoma law professor named Anita Hill at the Senate confirmation hearings for Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas in 1991. Hill\u2019s testimony galvanized a generation of women, and transformed sexual harassment from "just life" to an important part of the American civil rights landscape.
Please join us for this exciting opportunity to hear from Professor Anita Hill. There will be two panels. One will discuss sexual harassment at work, school, and in the street, while another focuses on the future of women\u2019s leadership. There will also be a lunch at which Professor Hill will offer keynote remarks.
