Director Freida Mock reports that one of the highlights of filming was the Oct. 2011 20th Anniversary all day event, Anita Hill 20 Years Later, with major leaders in the women’s and workplace rights movement—Gloria Steinen, Lani Guanier, Charles Ogletree and dozens of leaders – holding forums on issues that developed out of the 1991 Senate Thomas/Hill Hearings.  The event culminated in an evening performance by dramatists, poets, writers inspired by Anita Hill’s work and life—Eve Ensler (The Vagina Monologues), Lynn Nottage (Ruined, etc.), poet Kevin Powell and others.
