In the same year, she published the book ”Reimagining Equality: Stories of Gender, Race, and Finding Home.”

Before Joe Biden announced his bid for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, he called Anita to express his regret over how she was treated for his handling of a 1991 Senate hearing.

Hill said for BBC that apology was not enough without “real change.” She said:  ”I cannot be satisfied by simply saying, ‘I’m sorry for what happened to you.’”

Biden said for ABC: ”I believed her from the very beginning, but I was chairman. She did not get a fair hearing.” Joe Biden also said: ”I’m sorry for the way she got treated…If you go back and look at what I said or didn’t say, I don’t think I treated her badly.”


Professor Anita Hill was never married, however, she has been in a serious romantic relationship with a partner for 10 years.

”Certainly, my life will not ever be as private and discreet, and perhaps I should even use the word insulated, as it was before.”

”The real problem is that the way that power is given out in our society pits us against each other.”

”I resent the idea that people would blame the messenger for the message, rather than looking at the content of the message itself.”
