At the crossroads of gender, politics, and race
5 April 2018 | by triplemangoSee all my reviews

Anita Hill's publicly broadcasted testimony in 1991 against U.S. Supreme Court nominee, Clarence Thomas, has become one of the first well-known cases of sexual harassment. As Thomas waited for confirmation into the Court by the Senate Judiciary Committee, Hill stepped forward to recount the instances of sexual harassment she endured working under Justice Thomas' supervision, including inappropriate discussions of pornography and sexual acts. The 2016 political thriller film, Confirmation, dramatizes the Senate's induction of Judge Thomas. The HBO movie effectively captures the historical moment with convincing character interpretations by the lead roles, yet it overlooks the case's racial facets that layer the gender and political biases culminated in Judge Thomas' ultimate confirmation.
