By Daily Wire. While many noticed that actress-turned-left-wing activist Alyssa Milano landed a prime seat for the Kavanaugh-Ford hearing on Thursday so she could display solidarity with Ford and make a “power statement” by “staring down” Kavanaugh, some missed one key detail: the sign she occasionally flashed at the hearing.
I’m in D.C. because I don’t believe any man’s misogyny should take precedent over a survivor’s humanity.

Adding to the “circus” feeling of the Kavanaugh confirmation process, Milano was invited to the hearing by Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the ranking Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee who sat on the allegations by Ford for weeks before submitting them in the eleventh hour of the proceedings to the FBI. (For that delay, Feinstein came under heavy fire from Republicans Thursday.)

Alyssa Milano Describes Being in the Room for Ford-Kavanaugh Hearing: “There Was a Lot of Rage”
By Hollywood Reporter. The actress and prominent #MeToo activist, who attended Thursday’s hearing, tells The Hollywood Reporter how the mood shifted from a “feeling of hope” to one of anger during Christine Blasey Ford and Brett Kavanaugh’s Senate testimonies.
Alyssa Milano had a unique vantage point during the riveting Christine Blasey Ford and Judge Brett Kavanaugh testimonies. The actress and #MeToo activist was in the room when the Supreme Court nominee and his sexual assault accuser shared their conflicting stories before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday.
“I wasn’t there with any political agenda. I was there to support a survivor of sexual assault,” Milano tells The Hollywood Reporter on Friday morning. “As a survivor, it literally is all of our worst nightmares come true. This is exactly the reason why we don’t come forward, or we don’t report. Because of the scrutiny. Because a man’s word will always mean more than our word. And it’s disgusting.” (Read more from “Alyssa Milano Describes Being in the Room for Ford-Kavanaugh Hearing: “There Was a Lot of Rage” HERE)
