Black Women Come Out In Droves To Protest Supreme Court Nominee Brett Kavanaugh

Fatima Goss Graves, President and CEO of the National Women’s Law Center (NWLC) stood with allies last night on the steps of the high court in Washington, D.C. In a statement to ESSENCE, she said this nomination could put women’s health, equality, dignity, and even lives on the line. “It will shift the balance of the Court, and could roll back rights for an entire generation.” Calling Judge Kavanaugh “dangerous for women” the attorney noted that he has voted against women’s constitutional rights, including approving the Trump Administration blocking a young immigrant woman from obtaining an abortion. “This appalling opinion was Kavanaugh’s audition for the Supreme Court. After showing his hostility to abortion, he was added to Trump’s shortlist.”
