For the past 20 years, S. Carolina women have been honoring Professor Hill’s contribution to women’s right to be free of sexual harassment in the workplace. This year, for the 20th Anniversary, Professor Hill for the first time attended the party (on October 20) and the following day she was a keynote for the annual S. Carolina Women Lawyers Association Conference.
