Hollywood’s pick of Anita Hill to clean up sex harassment blasted as ‘bad joke’

Casting Anita Hill to lead a commission on sexual harassment in Hollywood may have seemed like an inspired choice, but it turns out the feminist icon hasn’t always been a champion of women preyed upon by powerful men.

Seven years after she accused Clarence Thomas of sexual harassment at his 1991 Supreme Court confirmation hearings, Ms. Hill rushed to the defense of President Clinton as he struggled to avoid impeachment amid accusations of sexual misconduct made by multiple women.
