Protesters descended on the Capitol Tuesday morning ahead of the first day of confirmation hearings for Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh. Among the many groups, one in particular grabbed eyes and cameras, a Demand Justice organized protest featuring women dressed in garb from the fictional TV show “The Handmaid’s Tale.”
There were many tweets and a good deal of attention, which is the first goal of any protest.
