In 1991, Anita Hill captured the world's attention when she testified about being sexually harrassed by Clarence Thomas, who had been her boss and was about to ascend to the Supreme Court. In court, Hill was challenged, disbelieved and humiliated whilst Clarence Thomas was given a life-long appointment to the US Supreme Court. Now this collection brings together three generations to analyse Hill's impact and give insights in law; politics; the union of race, class, and gender; the persistent questioning of women's credibility; and current cases of sexual harassment.
