But as sexual harassment cases brought into court by women continue, Hill makes it clear she will be there both as spokeswoman and figurehead. In basement file cabinets, she keeps 25,000 letters that she’s received over the years, both from women with accounts of harassment they suffered and fathers upset over what their daughters have had to endure in the workplace. Mock’s camera travels with Hill to workshops and conferences where she offers her voice and inspiration.
“I still see people who cry when they see me, or they go back to that place where they’re really angry,” Hill says in the film.
Outside the film, and sitting beside Mock as both wait for their next media interview, Hill rebuffs anyone who still sees her 1991 testimony through a partisan lens.
“People are no longer willing to chalk it [sexual harassment] up to a difference in politics,” she said. “It’s not about that. It’s about the human experience.”
