I posted a link to this Davis Media Access video to the Davisite Facebook page a few days ago, but I can't get it out of my head.
In the video, you see men supporting (now Supreme Court justice) Clarence Thomas, and men supporting Professor Anita Hill. You see women supporting Thomas, and women supporting Hill. But most of all, you hear exactly the same arguments on both sides that you are hearing in the media today concerning Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, who is now facing three separate sexual assault accusations: one from Prof. Christine Blasey Ford, one from Deborah Ramirez, and one from a number of as-yet-unnamed women who lawyer Michael Avenatti is representing.
If DMA were to redo those interviews in Davis today – in the #metoo #WhyIDidntReport #BelieveSurvivors era – would the results be much different?
I'd like to hope that they would be. But I fear that they wouldn't.
