'Nuff said

(Taking context-optional note of thought-provoking quotes)

'[T]wo decades after sitting through Hill's excruciatingly careful narrative, there is still no way for women to tell stories of sexual injustice that allows them to bypass character assassination.'

-- Rebecca Traister (right), Salon columnist and author of Big Girls Don't Cry (2010), a book about Hillary Clinton's 2008 Presidential bid (an election on which IntLawGrrls frequently posted). Traister's remark appeared in a thought-provoking New York Times Magazine essay that linked the 20th anniversary of the testimony of Professor Anita Hill (prior IntLawGrrls posts here and here) during confirmation hearings for Clarence Thomas, then a nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court, with contemporary treatment of various women's accounts.
