The Canadian Women’s Foundation brings Anita Hill to Toronto

Do you remember where you were when Anita Hill took the stand?

Many of us can still picture her ground-breaking testimony in the Supreme Court justice confirmation hearings of 1991.

Even if that historic moment happened before your time, you got a crash course this year as the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation hearings unfolded in an eerily similar way. And in the months prior, the #MeToo Movement’s revelations of sexual harassment and abuse of power brought Hill’s trailblazing advocacy to the forefront.

On Monday December 3rd, the Canadian Women’s Foundation brings Anita Hill to Toronto for an exclusive appearance to talk about her legacy and the future of gender equality.

As keynote speaker at The Exchange, Hill will reflect on the current landscape, and share what she believes is working when it comes to addressing sexual harassment in the workplace. “Overall, the message is that I want women to leave believing that change is possible,” Hill said in a recent interview.

Today, Anita Hill continues to advocate for change. She leads the Hollywood Commission on Sexual Harassment and Advancing Equality in the Workplace, which was created to address widespread sexual abuse and harassment in the media and entertainment industries.

Purchase your tickets to The Exchange today! Funds raised will go to the Canadian Women’s Foundation to support programs that empower women to move out of poverty, out of violence and into confidence and leadership.
