Amy Schumer and Emily Ratajkowski were arrested while demonstrating against the appointment of Judge Brett Kavanaugh in Washington. Dozens of women gathered on Capitol Hill to shout their displeasure. They were all handcuffed by the police.
Emily was holding a sign saying, “Respect the existence of women or expect our resistance.” Emily Ratajkowski, who shared the “I feel pretty” poster with Amy Schumer, explained on Instagram. “Today, I was arrested while protesting against Brett Kavanaugh’s application to the Supreme Court, a man who was accused of sexual assault by several women.” “Men who hurt women can no longer be put in positions of power.” Kavanaugh’s confirmation as a judge in the United States Supreme Court is a message to women in this country: they are told that they do not matter, I demand a government that recognizes, respects and supports women just as it does for men. “Amy Schumer floods Instagram with anti-Kavanaugh messages and calling for mobilization for a few days.
