In October 1991, Anita Hill testified before a Senate committee about the sexual harassment she endured by U.S. Supreme Court nominee, Clarence Thomas. Her explosive testimony captivated the nation, set off a firestorm of debates and transformed public opinion on sexual harassment in the workplace. This powerful documentary delves into Anita Hill’s impact on race, gender equality in the workplace and the obstacles she endured after her testimony. An open discussion will follow the film.

About sheswithmeseattle

She's With Me is the brain child of three feminists who got tired of emailing each other every time they caught wind of a womanist event, so they created a separate space to house their feminist calendar. The benefits would be twofold: fewer emails cluttering up their inboxes, and more people learning about Seattle's growing feminist community. She's With Me aims to be a feminist hub, where all the goings on of different organizations are collected in one place. Our plans for the site include reviews/write-ups of events, interviews with local feminist activists, news updates, and essays, poetry, and art by feminists. The Fourth Wave of Feminism is here, and She's With Me will be the feminist scrap book documenting our herstory as it unfolds.
