Anita Hill on the History of Female Supreme Court Justices


"For me the critical question is not whether the Supreme Court should have seats set aside for women; the one so often asked. Nearly 30 years after Justice O’Connor’s appointment, the question we confront as a country is whether we can let go of the presumption that these lofty positions belong to men. As Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg put it, 'Women belong in all places where decisions are being made . . . It shouldn’t be that women are the exception.'"

Anita Hill reflecting on Judge Sonia Sotomayor's Senate Judiciary Committee hearings today and on the scant history of women on the Supreme Court. Now a professor of social policy, law, and women's studies at Brandeis University, Hill is best known as a former colleague of US Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. Hill testified under oath during his 1991 Senate confirmation hearings that her supervisor Thomas had sexually harassed her while they worked together.
