On Oct 11, 1991, Anita Hill called to testify against Clarence Thomas for sexual harassment. She stated that he sexually harassed her while he was her supervisor at the Department of Education. She explained that even after being sexually harassed, she still followed Thomas to serve as his assistant in his second job because it was her ambition to work in the position she was at that time, she tolerated the harassment to work in that position.

Thomas considered Hill a friend and felt betrayed when she made these allegations. He called her a traitor in his autobiography, My grandfather’s Son. He even said her work was mediocre and was touchy. Hill denied the accusations and said in one of her interviews that she would not allow herself to be reinvented by his anger.
