Anita Hill landed in the middle of a media circus 21 years ago when she testified that Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas sexually harassed her. Recently, she found herself back in the news when Thomas' wife left her a phone message asking her to apologize.

Hill, senior advisor to the provost and professor of social policy, law, and women's studies at Brandeis University, published a book last year. She is in the Twin Cities for the 30th annual luncheon of Women Winning, a group that supports pro-choice women leadership in Minnesota. She joins The Daily Circuit Monday.
