Women’s rights organizations object to Kavanaugh nomination

Women’s rights advocates rallied in the rain Wednesday in opposition to Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court, saying he had a discouraging track record on issues that matter to women. Standing outside the Supreme Court for more than an hour in periods of rain, the demonstrators chanted for equal pay and the protection of women’s rights. Some clutched signs that read “Kava-nah” as speakers expressed their disapproval of Kavanaugh’s record on equal pay, abortion rights and other issues.
