It's been 23 years since Anita Hill testified about the alleged harassment she received at the hands of Clarence Thomas. Now, Hill is the star of a new film, "Anita," which details her feelings about the Supreme Court case and Hill's life post-testimony.
"Initially, I thought I would just go back and do what I do: commercial law and contracts," Hill told Slate's Dahlia Lithwick of her time after giving her Supreme Court testimony. "But within months I was getting so many requests that it just felt that there was a sincere effort for people to understand sexual harassment. It took a lot of letters from people who were asking really sincere questions, and so I gave it two years. And 23 years later … I say to people I do know how to count. There just seem to be so many layers to the problem that we're still trying to address them."
Hill noted that she still sees the same problems that were present 23 years ago and even beyond: women still suffering harassment and blaming one another or not being believed by others when they tell their stories. It's one of the main reasons that she chose to participate in "Anita," which provides an intimate look at her life now and then. Hill praises her parents and credits them with her continuing work on behalf of women who need it. more >>

After receiving media attention and a letter from a Christian legal group, Branford High School administrators have backed off from censoring Students for Life of Branford. The student-led club will now have the same privileges as the other clubs at the school.
"On behalf of Branford High School Students for Life and on behalf of all abortion abolitionists across the nation, I am honored to say that another victory for the pre-born has been won," Sam Bailey-Loomis, founder and president of Branford Students for Life, said in a Students for Life of America press release.
As The Christian Post reported on March 11, school administrators would not let the pro-life student club show a model of a fetus at their display table, and would not let them set up the display table, hand out information and recruit members, or "clipboard," at lunch, even though other student clubs were allowed to do so. more >>
