Twenty years after delivering powerful testimony at the confirmation hearings for Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas, U.S. attorney Anita Hill revisits her heroic stand against systemic sexism. Having endured repeated harassment from Thomas, Hill faced an all-white male jury in a grueling nine-hour experience that would become a turning point for gender equality in the United States. Academy Award-winning filmmaker Freida Mock traces Hill's historic triumph, one that paved the way for women to speak their truth to power.
