Executive Director Noreen Farrell Discusses Sexual Harassment on KALW

April 1, 2014 | by
On March 31, 2014, Executive Director Noreen Farrell appeared on Your Call, a public affairs call-in show on San Francisco radio station KALW, to discuss the new film ANITA: Speaking Truth to Power and sexual harassment at work.

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.”
