Join us for a special screening of ANITA, followed by a Q&A with Academy Award winner Freida Lee Mock.

On October 11, 1991, a poised young law professor sent shock waves through the nation as she sat before the Senate Judiciary Committee intrepidly testifying to the lewd behavior of a Supreme Court nominee.

In the midst of the #MeToo movement, the Film Club revisits Academy Award winner Freida Lee Mock’s ANITA, which crystallizes the sexist power dynamics in the room that day and unravels the impact of that lightning-rod moment on Anita Hill’s life and the broader discussion of gender inequality in America.

All attendees are invited to stay after the screening for a Q & A with the director of the film and the Executive Director of Human Rights Watch’s Women’s Rights Division.
