Anita Hill

People need to take this moment to make clear that this is not just about Hollywood.

Long before #MeToo took hold or hashtags even existed, Anita Hill paved the way for women who are survivors of sexual assault in the workplace and their courage to come forward.  She's hoping the Weinstein lesson will trickle down from the experiences of the women he assaulted and the impact that their experiences had on Hollywood to one that creates a climate where all women are believed — not just rich and famous ones.  Ms. Hill  is still addressing inequality in the workplace, moving beyond harassment and now working to address pay equity as well. In a lecture she gave at Yale University, her alma mater, Ms. Hill stressed that pay inequity is about more than just gender; it's also about where we focus our energy on fixing the pay gap.
