Some 26 years after her testimony in Clarence Thomas' Supreme Court confirmation hearing brought sexual harassment into the national spotlight, Anita Hill says she sees the needle moving again with the saga that is transfixing Hollywood.
Yet Hill, now a university professor, also cautions that real-world progress in fighting sexual harassment will be incremental at best, and that many women in the workplace still fear retaliation if they come forward.
Others, like former Fox News anchor Gretchen Carlson, cite confidential settlements and mandatory arbitration clauses as contributing to a veil of secrecy around sexual harassment.
