Believing Women: Anita Hill in Conversation @ Chicago Humanities Festival, UIC Dorin Forum, 725 W. Roosevelt Road, 10:30am-Noon
WHAT: The #MeToo OG speaks out.
SO WHAT: Anita Hill spoke truth to power in 1991 with her historic testimony during Clarence Thomas’s Supreme Court nomination hearings (and his ethics continue to be in question and in the news). Over 30 years later, misogyny and sexual assault remain rampant, which she discusses in her new book Believing: Our Thirty-Year Journey to End Gender Violence, and with event moderator Laura S. Washington of the Chicago Sun-Times. Ticket holders can submit questions online before the event. Masks and proof of vaccination are currently required for indoor programs.
NOW WHAT: Tickets are $20 for students and teachers, $25 for CHF members, $30 for general public, and $75 for a ticket with an autographed book (regular books are also available for $33, including shipping).
