Freedom from sexual harassment

From the February 1993 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Freedom from Harassment

The testimony by Anita Hill during the 1991 confirmation hearings of Clarence Thomas to the United States Supreme Court—regardless of whether the allegations she made were correct—heightened public awareness of a problem of long standing. Comments by the public during the hearings and the kind of questioning Professor Hill received revealed society's need for a better understanding of the nature of harassment and for sensitivity to the problem.
