Featured Speaker


Equality and Civil Rights Activist

Anita Hill has been an advocate for equality and civil rights for the past three decades. She is the youngest of 13 from a farm in rural Oklahoma. Hill received her J.D. from Yale Law School in 1980 and began her career in private practice. Before becoming a law professor, she worked at the U.S. Education Department and Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.  

Hill’s latest book, “Believing: Our Thirty-Year Journey to End Gender Violence,” is a new manifesto about the origins and course of gender violence in our society. A combination memoir, personal accounts, law and social analysis, the book is a powerful call to arms from one of our most prominent and poised survivors. She has also written an autobiography, “Speaking Truth to Power.” 

Commentary from Hill has been published in TIME, Newsweek, The New York Times, The Boston Globe and Ms. Magazine. She has received numerous honorary degrees and civic awards. Hill also has chaired the Human Rights Law Committee of the International Bar Association. Additionally, she is on the Board of Governors of the Tufts Medical Center and the Board of Directors of the National Women’s Law Center and the Boston Area Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights.
