Roosevelt Island Women's Movie Group Showing Anita Hill Story - Anita: Speaking Truth To Power September 18 At Gallery RIVAA 7 PM, Bring A Friend

From the Roosevelt Island Women's Movie Group:

Speak out against sexual harassment with our next film: Anita: Speaking Truth to Power, Thursday, September 18, 2014 at 7:00 pm in Gallery RIVAA at 527 Main Street.

An entire country watched as a poised, beautiful African-American woman sat before a Senate committee of 14 white men and with a clear, unwavering voice recounted the repeated acts of sexual harassment she had endured while working with U.S. Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas. Anita Hill's graphic testimony in 1991 was a turning point for gender equality in the U.S. and ignited a political firestorm about sexual harassment and power in the workplace that resonates still today.
