Anita Hill, 20 Years On, Seeks Equality: Susan Antilla

(Corrects date and details of a court dismissal in 11th paragraph)

Oct. 6 (Bloomberg) -- Anita Hill sits at a tiny conference table in her office at Brandeis University, just outside Boston, as I quiz her on the obvious themes. Her testimony during hearings to confirm Clarence Thomas to the U.S. Supreme Court? Admittedly a “terrible” experience, “but I want people to understand that I survived it.” Attacks on her character? A good thing for women in the workplace because now “they know what to expect” should they ever go public about harassment.
