Feminists Response to Kavanaugh's Nomination

 
 
 

For the past few weeks, many feminists have reacted to Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination in a very negative light, as many of the allegations against him suggest that his nomination could spell the end of an equal government. Influential women such as Linda Sarsour, Jamia Wilson, and Gloria Allred have all independently stated that this event is a great casualty to the feminist movement in American government. Many of these women have strongly urged that his nomination will signal a conservative era in our government, all of which is detrimental to the feminist movement. However, they also urge women to take action on the issues that matter to them.
