As a white male who has experienced sexual harassment, I techincally would not fit the image of sexual harassment or Anita Hill's defintion. One thing that was disappointing about this book was that she reflected to much on racial and gender politics, although in her case they are undeniable. I believe her with the charges that she brings up in this book. She hit a vein, I think, in talking about African American politics and how it has hampered any attempt at adjudicating the problem. I sympathize with Ms. Hill. I think she was sexually harassed by Clarance Thomas and was harassed even more worsely by Republican Senators bent on revenge and cowardly Democratic Senators. Her story was certainly manipulated by David Brock and relied on insinuations for Senator Spector (shame on him). I, think, however that Ms. Hill was too smart a woman to be either a pawn or not politically connected. The latter charge by her I would dispute. I hope one day Ms. Hill gets the justice she deserves.

She did everything she could to bring down a brilliant legal scholar. Had Clarence Thomas been a liberal I doubt Anita Hill would have had a problem with him.
