We must all understand that there is great merit in sacrificing for others and that by so doing we live the full life.
Aung San Suu Kyi, Nobel Peace Prize Winner
Aung San Suu Kyi is considered a bodhisattva in her country. I would consider Anita a bodhisattva in the USA. Both have led full lives of compassionate giving. Below is my book review of Hill’s book from goodreads.
Anita Hill tells her story with courage and heart. Her incise arguments to every sexist and racist claim made against her had me riveted. Her stories were both moving and offered insight into several generations of an African-American family meeting degradation with strength and unrelenting dignity. The recent documentary film, Anita, is a great compliment to her writing and helps us understand the tenor of the Hill-Thomas hearing of 1991 by the power of it’s visual impact. We also have the opportunity to see the continuation of her impactful work against sexual harassment two decades after the event. Although the book was published in 1998, I found it vital in describing a historical event, Anita Hill speaking truth to power, that has changed the lives of women worldwide.
