Watching #AnitaHill speak at #GraceHopper celebration. You can live stream you go to their site.

Needed this community, this speaker, after witnessing questioning of Dr Ford and Kavanaugh.
no female up for supreme court justice would be able to be vulnerable in the same way" -talking about Judge Kavanaugh being able to cry and be angry in a way we would never allow a woman up for the job. #gracehopper2018 #GHC18 #GHC #AnitaHill #Keynote
Women need to have authenticity (emotions, personality) in how we do our work, and we are in a system that does not allow us to have it, but does for men. -#AnitaHill #gracehopper2018 #Ghc #GHC18
We can all relate to showing up and telling a story we wish we didn't have to, to people who don't care to hear it. -#AnitaHill #GraceHopper #gracehopper2018 #GHC18 #KavanaughHearings
Anita Hill says public understanding today versus 1991 will be elevated.
Russell Baker of nyt called 1992 #Anitahill hearing too "vulgar" to be discussed.
Progress is that that would not happen today. Thanks to @TaranaBurke and #metoo

#AnitaHill says : #Kavanaugh will be confirmed. Would be surprised if he is not.
She talked about Mandated arbitration - at time of her hearing, civil rights act of 1991 gave women right to being awarded damages. SCOTUS then influenced how that law was then implemented

2% of workers in 1992 had contracts for mandated arbitration to get damages, now 53% do post 1992 Gilmer case.
So we see SCOTUS has opened previously our options to bring damages. With kavanaugh likely that SCOTUS will decrease those options #GraceHopper #gracehopper2018 #GHC18
#AnitaHill Congress said they cared more about schedule than human element.

Nun from elementary school testified at previous SCOTUS hearings. Not unprecedented for SCOTUS hearings to take a long time. Sth that happened in high school is relevant.

#AnitaHill women have increased in workplaces. But rules still haven't changed to reflect that.

Mentions Lily Ledbetter case and #NotoriousRBG role. Men on SCOTUS understand how Ledbetter didn't know shr was paid less and why Ledbetter didn't raise issue earlier.
#AnitaHill : RBG influenced Congress by focusing on human element. We have to focus on human element to get laws changed.

Focus on how value comes from workers, not arbitrary stock or other values.

And yes RBG is #NotoriousRBG
Keeping workers safe and thriving is important. Public sector not leading ethically and so corporations can.

500 corporations have made pledges to do work around diversity, sex harassment, and some are doing it.
