Synopsis

ANITA HILL vs. CLARENCE THOMAS: The Hearing that Changed the Supreme Court

Sex & Justice presents the dramatic confrontation between Anita Hill and Clarence Thomas at his Supreme Court confirmation hearings before the United States Senate in 1991. Not since the McCarthy hearings of the 1950s has the nation been so riveted with such political passion. Narrated by leading feminist writer Gloria Steinem, Sex & Justice brings back the highlights of those explosive moments. As Ms. Steinem puts it, “The hearings made history and changed history.”


Reviews

"The Anita Hill/Clarence Thomas hearings are part of the national psyche." - Newsweek

"Immensely revealing and unforgettable. The ultimate in nonfiction television."
- The New York Times

"The powerfully edited heart of three days that changed the nation. This film will surprise those who think they remember it all - and amaze others." - Ms. Magazine

"A riveting refresher...the drama couldn’t be more powerful and the commentary more incisive." - Video Business

"Well-balanced...gives both Hill and Thomas their day in court." - Video Alert

"Remember ‘a high-tech lynching for uppity blacks’ and the relish with which Senator Hatch kept repeating ‘Long Dong Silver’? SEX & JUSTICE does an admirable job of boiling down the Hill-Thomas hearings while still providing the larger chunks of speech that surround the sensational sound bites." - Entertainment Weekly
