Actress Amy Schumer is among 300 people who've been arrested in Washington during a protest over Brett Kavanaugh.
Thousands of women turned out to protest his nomination as a Supreme Court judge yesterday.

Senators are due vote on whether Judge Kavanaugh should join the US Supreme Court today, paving the way for a full vote tomorrow.
Brett Kavanaugh denies historical sexual assault allegations and it's reported an FBI investigation suggests "no hint of misconduct".

Today I was arrested protesting the Supreme Court nomination of Brett Kavanaugh, a man who has been accused by multiple women of sexual assault. Men who hurt women can no longer be placed in positions of power. pic.twitter.com/nnwq1O4qk3— Emily Ratajkowski (@emrata) October 4, 2018
