Your Call: How do we define sexual harassment today?

  

On today’s Your Call, we’ll have a conversation with filmmaker, Freida Mock, about her documentary Anita.  In 1991, Anita Hill became a household name when she testified to Congress that her former boss, Clarence Thomas-then a Supreme Court nominee- sexually harassed her. How did Anita Hill affect the way we talk about sexual harassment, and workplace policies?  How has sexual harassment changed – and what works to stop it?  Join the conversation on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.

Guests:

Liz Watson, director of Workplace Justice for Women and senior counsel to the Education and Employment and Cross-cutting Teams at the National Women's Law Center.

Noreen Farrell, executive director of Equal Rights Advocates

Freida Mock, Academy Award and Emmy Award – winning filmmaker, and director of the documentary ANITA: Speaking Truth to Power
