Anita Hill urges us all to battle gender violence


“Believing: Our Thirty-Year Journey to End Gender Violence” by Anita Hill (Viking)

“Believing: Our Thirty-Year Journey to End Gender Violence,” is 300 pages packed with some of Anita Hill’s personal stories, including the emotional days before Christine Blasey Ford testified against Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh for sexual assault.

The law and gender studies professor at Brandeis University and famed women’s rights advocate remains hopeful about the future.

There’s a lot of gender studies and theory in “Believing.” With scholarly sophistica­tion, Hill calls out the failings of our politician­s, courts, places of work and home life.

She argues we’ve been conditione­d to view gender violence as somebody else’s problem, something that happens to others or “not that bad.”
