Female staffers in the state Capitol in Sacramento on Monday showed their support for those accusing U.S. Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault.
Dozens of women, all dressed in black, walked out of the Capitol holding signs that read “We Believe Survivors” and “Believe Women.”
We Said Enough co-founder Samantha Corbin organized the walkout, which she says is important in preventing Kavanaugh’s confirmation.
“It is the continued public pressure of people who are voters that will force, frankly, the hand of people in power to behave appropriately," Corbin said. "And if we sit by idly, they will continue to behave as they have.”
We Said Enough is an organization that launched last year by releasing a signed letter from a bipartisan group of more than 140 of some of California's most powerful women, decrying an atmosphere of sexual harassment and assault at the state Capitol and calling for changes.
