to the
29th Annual "I Believe Anita Hill" Celebration

When:
THURSDAY, October 15, 2020
6-7:30 PM


Where: 
The Comfort of Your Own Home 


Because of Covid-19, this year’s celebration will be totally online. Professor Anita Hill will join us virtually for some remarks. 

RSVP here!

A link to our Zoom celebration will be sent only to those who pre-register a day before the celebration. We can't be together in person, but we're going to have a great virtual time!
 
Even though you're working from home, you still want to treat every meeting as you would if you were participating in person. That means take a shower, get dressed appropriately, and plan out your setting to make sure you have what you need. Don't forget your snacks and libations so you don't miss a minute as we remember 28 consecutive years!

See our website for current news.


Known as South Carolina's largest networking opportunity for women, it is also the longest-running event honoring Anita Hill for her courage in testifying against then U.S. Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas before the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee in 1991. The party is free thanks to the support of our hosts and your online contributions are gratefully accepted.
The Anita Hill Celebration is a 501C3 Corporation. Donations are tax deductible.

 

Bring someone along. One mission of the AHP is to educate younger women and men about equal rights and how the experiences of the past months remind us that we have not yet achieved them.

About Professor Anita Hill

Anita Hill is a Professor of Social Policy, Law, and Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies at Brandeis University. In 1991, Professor Hill testified before the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee during the confirmation hearings for then-U.S. Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas. Professor Hill has written several books regarding her experiences and has received numerous awards, grants, and honorary degrees. In April 2016, the HBO movie “Confirmation” was released, which told the story of the famous hearings and their aftermath. 

In 2017, Hill was chosen to lead the charge against sexual harassment in the entertainment industry for the Commission on Sexual Harassment and Advancing Equality in the Workplace. Its mission is “to tackle the broad culture of abuse and power disparity.” In April 2019, Hill was once again in the news when former Vice-President Joe Biden phoned her to “convey his regrets for what she endured” during the Clarence Thomas confirmation hearings.  (Biden, who in 1991 presided over the hearings as chairman of the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee, was subsequently criticized for not calling several other witnesses to testify.
