Anita Hill told The New York Times she "cannot be satisfied" with former Vice President Joe Biden's apology for her treatment during the Senate confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas in 1991.

Biden, who announced his campaign for president Thursday, as chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee oversaw Thomas' confirmation and has expressed regret for the way he handled Hill's allegation.

"The focus on apology to me is one thing," she told the news outlet Wednesday. "But he needs to give an apology to the other women and to the American public because we know now how deeply disappointed Americans around the country were about what they saw. And not just women. There are women and men now who have just really lost confidence in our government to respond to the problem of gender violence."

A spokeswoman for Biden said he shared with Hill "his regret for what she endured and his admiration for everything she has done to change the culture around sexual harassment in this country."

Hill said she would be satisfied when "I know there is real change and real accountability and real purpose."
