Several dozen women supporting Brett Kavanaugh held a press conference Friday in Washington to show support for the embattled U.S. Supreme Court nominee, who faces a public showdown next Thursday over claims he sexually assaulted a teenager in the 1980s when they were high school teenagers.

Dozens of women, standing on a platform under a pink #IStandWithBrett banner, gathered in a downtown Washington hotel as the faces of support for Kavanaugh. The judge has denied the claims brought by California professor Christine Blasey Ford, who said a teenage Kavanaugh pinned her to a bed at a party, tried to remove her clothes and covered her mouth to stop her from screaming.
