US Capitol police said 302 were arrested. "We will win. A vote for Kavanaugh is a vote saying women don't matter". Among them was Schumer, who is involved with the Time's Up movement against sexual violence and harassment and is a distant relative of the Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer, and the model Emily Ratajkowski.

Comedian-actress Amy Schumer was also reportedly detained while protesting against Kavanaugh, according to MSNBC.

A Daily Caller journalist posted a video on Twitter, which shows Schumer being asked if she wanted to get arrested - to which the comedian responded, "Yes".

Among the arrested: comedian and actress Amy Schumer, a distant cousin of Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer of NY.

Schumer and Ratajkowski appeared in the 2018 comedy "I Feel Pretty". "Men who hurt women can no longer be placed in positions of power", she wrote on Twitter.

Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh has been accused of sexual assault by three women.

The two were among crowds of activists who descended on Capitol Hill while lawmakers reviewed the Federal Bureau of Investigation report on the allegations against Kavanaugh.

More than 300 people were detained for "unlawfully demonstrating" inside the Senate office building. The Women's March, a liberal organization that originated as a grassroots movement in opposition to President Donald Trump, was one of multiple groups tweeting from the protest at the Capitol building.

Kavanaugh has ben accused of sexually assaulting Californian College professor, Christine Ford, but he denies the allegations.

Similar to how Alyssa Milano was shamed for her outfit at the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing last week, Ratajkowski's clothing, instead of her message, garnered the most attention by Kavanaugh supporters.
