Anita Hill: Kav hearings were a ‘disservice’
The way the sexual assault allegations against Brett Kavanaugh were handled “was a disservice to the American public,” says Anita Hill, nearly three decades after she was put through the wringer for making similar claims.
Hill, 62, spoke Wednesday at the University of Pennsylvania and noted not much has changed in the years since she testified that then-Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas had sexually harassed her in the workplace.
“What happened was not only a disservice to the people who were the principal witnesses, but was a disservice to the American public. We were all disserved in 1991 — people wanted to understand sexual harassment. In 2018, they wanted to understand sexual assault,” Hill (inset) said, according to the Guardian.
