“We will be grateful forever to you, Dr. Ford. You’ll see our gratitude in our straightened spines. You’ll see it when we march, when we walk out, when we show up.

Survivors and feminist leaders, lawmakers and celebrities are calling on all of us to keep fighting in the wake of Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation—and to vow to remember in November.
Regardless of how this fight ends, feminists have made clear that they’re not going silently into the night. Activists around the country will continue to protest Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination tonight and tomorrow.
