Hill was empowering to watch because of her assuredness in her speech. It is obvious that she has spent her time accumulated knowledge of the law and the art of teaching. I assumed that she would discuss the court case more deeply, and although I was initially disappointed, but I get the point of it. Her speech was inspiring in the fact that she shows that life is an epic journey of self-definition. She is not self-defined as a victim although she is labeled that by some. She self-defined herself as not a victim when she called out Clarence Thomas.
