Web Exclusive: Anita Hill's Aftermath
Shauna Lake: Did you feel alone at that point in time? I mean you had done something so scary.
Anita Hill: I didn't feel alone. I had wonderful friends, I had wonderful family and colleagues at my university but there were many detractors and critics and you sort of feel like it’s just you in your group of people. And you also have to recall at the time when polling was done 7 out of 10 people thought that I had perjured myself. So you just didn't have a sense of what was going on outside of where I was living outside the University Of Oklahoma College Of Law; and so I didn't feel entirely alone but I did feel isolated. And so when I started hearing from people outside of that frame it was really comforting to know that there were people who understood why I had come forward and that it was important for the senate to consider.
