On an October day in 1991, Anita Hill, a bookish law professor from Oklahoma, was thrust onto the world stage and instantly became a celebrated, hated, venerated and divisive figure. An entire country watched transfixed as a poised African-American woman in a blue dress sat before a Senate committee of 14 white men, and with a clear, unwavering voice recounted the repeated acts of sexual harassment she had endured while working with then U.S. Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas.

Hill’s graphic testimony was a turning point for gender equality in the U.S. and ignited a political firestorm about sexual misconduct and power in the workplace that resonates still today. Against a backdrop of sex, politics and race, “Anita” reveals the intimate story of a woman who spoke truth to power. Hill also candidly discusses what happened to her life and works in the years since.
