Actress Amy Schumer and model-actress Emily Ratajkowski were among the over 300 people who were arrested for protesting in the Senate office buildings here against the nomination to the Supreme Court of Judge Brett Kavanaugh, who is accused of alleged sexual abuse. "Men who hurt women can no longer be placed in positions of power", Ratajkowski tweeted. "At this point, opposing Kavanaugh is not about a political party.it's about ensuring that women-people-of every political party are safe".

She gave evidence in front of the committee that Mr Kavanaugh, then aged 17, sexually assaulted her when she was aged 15 in Maryland in 1982. Kavanaugh has vehemently denied the allegations since they first arose, and did so again during his testimony at last week's hearing.
