Anita Hill

Attorney and Brandeis University professor Anita Hill has been picked to lead a new commission tasked with addressing rampant sexual misconduct in the entertainment industry, trade publications reported Friday.

Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy and other top film executives elected Hill to guide the newly established Hollywood Commission for Eliminating Sexual Harassment and Advancing Equality in the Workplace.

The announcement comes 11 weeks after The New York Times published its bombshell report on former star producer Harvey Weinstein’s decades of abuse, the first of many such reports.

Hill stepped into the national spotlight back in 1991, when she accused then–Supreme Court nominee ― and current Supreme Court justice ― Clarence Thomas of sexual harassment. In televised testimony during the Senate’s confirmation hearing led by then–Sen. Joe Biden (D-Del.), Hill described sexually explicit comments made by Thomas during the time she worked with him.
