Dr. Christine Blasey Ford’s testimony continued the courageous legacy of others, including Anita Hill, that have come forward after experiencing assault and opened the door for more women to be empowered to speak out.

In 2018, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford was called before the Senate hearings on Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the highest court in our country. Ford testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee, stating that “I believed that he was going to rape me.”

For years following the hearings and to this day, Hill’s credibility has been questioned with accusations that she was delusional or had been spurned by Thomas, therefore seeking revenge.

Hill was subjected to hours of testimony where she described Thomas’ persistent sexual advances and inappropriate statements while at the Dept of Education and EEOC. Four female witnesses waited to be called in to testify. They never got that chance.

He noted that Increased federal enforcement, enhanced penalties, as well as strengthened notice, record keeping and pay-stub information rules will discourage employers from cheating employees and make it easier for those cheated to secure a remedy. /4

Katz encouraged the Committee to ensure that the U. S. Department of Labor’s (“DOL”) enforcement and outreach functions are adequately funded and that DOL protects the most vulnerable members of the workforce. As well as the proposed amendments to the Fair Labor Standards Act. /3

This is not what democracy looks like! Support all DC schools. DC Students have so much to offer, to do and to live for — when will we value all of them.
