January LaVoy's narration precisely reflects Anita Hill's call to effect real change in the institutional acceptance of gender violence against women, men, and nonbinary individuals. LaVoy expertly delivers Hill's cringe-worthy examples of actual instances of mansplaining, victim blaming, flat-out denial, and gaslighting, showing how these tactics reinforce society's complex structures of sexism, racism, and misogynistic attitudes. While Black women experience a higher instance of sexual harassment than white women, transgender and nonbinary people are also particularly vulnerable. Hill draws parallels between the Kavanaugh hearings and Dr. Ford's allegations of his sexual misconduct and her own devastating dismissal by senators and VIPs at the Thomas hearings. Hill's deeply affecting work to promote a progressive women's agenda is made even better by LaVoy's intelligent presentation. This is a must-listen. S.J.H.
