Demonstrators dressed as handmaidens await the arrival of US Supreme Court nominee judge Brett Kavanaugh prior to his appearance before a Senate judiciary committee on Capitol Hill. More than 30 women were arrested for protesting at the hearing over concerns about Kavanaugh’s stances on issues from abortion to LGBT rights, according to the Women’s March, which claimed credit for the protests.
