BU History PhD Anne Blaschke, now a Visiting Assistant Professor of History at the College of the Holy Cross, co-wrote an article in The Washington Post‘s “Made By History” section. The article historically contextualizes the 1991 Anita Hill testimony at the Senate confirmation hearings of current Justice Clarence Thomas, asking whether we’ve really learned from Hill’s experience given the current political tension and gender politics around Christine Blasey Ford and Brett Kavanaugh. The article, titled “The Kavanaugh allegations show what we have–and haven’t–learned from Anita Hill,” is available to read at The Washington Post‘s website here.
