“Anita Hill: It’s Time for Women in Tech to Sue for Equality,” KQED Public Radio
August 08, 2017
Women in tech need to be more proactive in how they take their companies to task on sexism and gender inequality — including filing lawsuits, lawyer Anita Hill told KQED on Tuesday, in response to a senior engineer’s controversial memo condemning Google’s diversity initiatives. Hill is a professor of social policy, law, and women’s, gender and sexuality studies at Brandeis.
“I’m hesitant to put more on women, but I believe that there are some people ready to take that step, and when some step forward to file a complaint, others will join,” she said. “That’s really been my personal experience.”
