Executive Director Noreen Farrell Discusses Sexual Harassment on KALW
The segment focused in part on what has (and hasn’t) changed since Anita Hill testified during the confirmation hearings for now-Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.
During the show, Noreen says:
“It’s hard to believe that sexual harassment was prohibited by law 50 years ago when the Civil Rights Act of of 1964 was passed. The fact that 23 years ago [when Anita testified] it was still such a watershed moment in terms of stepping forward shows how the law isn’t enforced adequately.”
