Female members of the House of Representatives stood in silent protest on Friday during the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing to confirm Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court. The vote comes one day after the committee heard Christine Blasey Ford’s powerful and gutting testimony about the assault she incurred as a teenager at, she says, the hands of Kavanaugh. The representatives, after standing, were led out by Capitol Police officers.
