Moonves, which he denies. The allegations cover the time period of his tenure at the media giant. Concerning the situationthe school said:
Haddon, a contemporary of Hill's who had gotten to know her over the years, asked if Hill would serve as the law school's commencement speaker. Hill's pioneering role against sexual harassment — she accused then-U. Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas in — wasn't the primary reason for the invite.
But certainly, Haddon said, the burgeoning MeToo movement and its fallout provides an ideal context for Hill's address Thursday in Camden. And Rutgers wasn't the only school to think so.
She's replacing author Daniel Handler, whose pen name is Lemony Snicket, who stepped away from the role after allegations that he had made inappropriate remarks to women.
Hill's invites come in a year when female commencement speakers will take the stage at some of the nation's most prominent colleges and universities. Nearly 60 percent of speakers at the 25 schools with the largest endowments will host women speakers this year, the Associated Press reportedafter a nearly two-decade stretch where women had accounted for only about a quarter of the speakers at those schools.
Some speakers already have referenced MeToo and "Times Up" — Hollywood celebrities' movement against sexual harassment.
Hill declined to be interviewed about her speech. In the last year, she agreed to chair the Commission on Sexual Harassment and Advancing Equality in the Workplace, a new group aimed at eradicating harassment in the entertainment industry. Both, she said, have been "fueled by a longstanding and national anger about women's treatment that reached a boiling point.
They include, she said, "the women from Hollywood to Washington to everywhere in between who followed Tarana Burke's lead to say Me Too and Times Up for sexual harassment and violence against women, who have taken a story about monsters and turned it into a story about heroines.
Burke, a former Philadelphia artist and fashion blogger and survivor of sexual harassment, coined MeToo in and saw it take on international meaning, following revelations about Weinstein. And we are learning a lot about how powerful men, who did despicable things, were protected for so long.
Haddon, the chancellor of Rutgers-Camden. In Camden, Haddon recalled well the mood among many of her colleagues more than a quarter-century ago when Hill was aggressively questioned by a panel of male senators at the confirmation hearing.
Haddon was then a law professor at Temple University and it was during her time at Temple that she got to know Hill. There were few black female law professors at that time, she said, and Haddon and her colleagues were in awe of Hill's willingness to take a stand when many were not.
They were riveted by the hearing. She joined a network called, "Ain't I a Woman," named after a piece written by an African American abolitionist and women's rights pioneer. But MeToo showed problems have persisted, Haddon said. She hopes Hill's address will give rise to a new round of conversations about all kinds of inequalities and the need to address them.
