A billboard screened Christine Blasey Ford’s testimony to Congress outside a private dinner in Washington where Supreme Court Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh was scheduled to speak on November 14.
Kavanaugh was a speaker at the annual Federalist Society 2019 National Lawyers Convention black-tie dinner, known as the “nation’s premier gathering of conservatives in the law”, USA TODAY reported.
Ford told Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings last year that he sexually assaulted her when they were both in high school, an allegation he denies. Kavanaugh went on to take up the Supreme Court post after being nominated by President Donald Trump.
Protesters met the black-tie event’s attendees outside Washington’s Union Station, some donned in red capes similar to those depicted in Margaret Atwood’s dystopian novel ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’. Credit: depressionsad3 via Storyful
