Anita Hill

Anita Hill is known primarily as the former colleague of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, who in 1991 accused then-nominee Thomas of having sexually harassed her. Thomas had been Hill's supervisor at the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission[?] during the Reagan Administration[?]. Despite the accusations, the US Senate narrowly confirmed Thomas.

David Brock[?] of the right-wing magazine "American Spectator[?]" published "The Real Anita Hill", a book claiming to provide evidence that Hill had lied during the hearings. In 2001, Brock admitted that he had fabricated the evidence, and that he had also lied in later reports about President Bill Clinton.

Hill was born July 30th, 1956 in Lone Tree, Oklahoma[?]. She received her Law Degree from Yale University, and has taught at Oral Roberts University School of Law, the University of Oklahoma[?], and Brandeis University. Hill is also an author and public speaker.
