Anita Hill is in the news again, with a new movie on HBO. “Confirmation“ chronicles the intense confirmation battle for Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas after Anita Hill, a former employee, claimed he sexually harassed her.
Recently National Public Radio has broadcast “The Real Story” behind the confirmation battle. Nina Totenberg, the reporter who broke the story, has fascinating things to say about what transpired. Two audio links are supplied at the link I’ve just given you; both give insight into Anita Hill, a woman who spoke truth to power; Nina Totenberg, a reporter who wouldn’t give up; and the horrendous backlash that followed Anita Hill’s courageous testimony.
From a political perspective, you may find these podcasts fascinating. Especially if you care about Black Lives Matter, or today’s harrassment in the American workplace (where race is the most common problem, followed by sexual harrassment), or even today’s new sexual warfare being conducted over bathroom privileges, like the city in Alabama that has enacted a law, “Use bathrooms matching your biological sex or face six months of jail time.”
Today’s blog post gives you a different kind of inside story. About another kind of truth that Anita Hill set in motion. Indirectly. About the system trademarked as Aura Reading Through All Your Senses®.
In the political scheme of things, I know that my discovery was small potatoes. But I’m going to share that story because, in the world of energetic literacy — including the part of the world about Rosetree Energy Spirituality (RES) — energy READING skills are a pretty tasty and nourishing kind of potato dish, too.
