The Hollywood Commission

Anita
Hill

Chair

As the leader of the Hollywood Commission, Hill has pulled back the curtain on work culture in the industry, with a series of reports revealing pervasive abuses that go well beyond sexual harassment. Its survey of 9,630 entertainment workers found “entrenched and endemic issue with bullying … exacer­bated by the industry’s power imbalances,” with three out of four workers age 18-29 experiencing some form of bullying in 2019. Its findings have been much more well received in the post-#MeToo environment than during Hill’s 1991 Senate testimony alleging sexual harassment against then-Supreme Court justice nominee Clarence Thomas, which had detractors accusing her of being everything from delusional to a bitter prude. In the years since, Hill has largely kept a low profile, working as a law professor at Brandeis University.
