Ratajkowski also took to Twitter to share her detention.
“Today I was arrested protesting the Supreme Court nomination of Brett Kavanaugh, a man who has been accused by multiple women of sexual assault,” the model posted, along with a picture of her marching with a group of women in front of the Capitol. She is holding a sign, reading “Respect Female Existence or Expect Our Resistance.”

She continued on Instagram: “Kavanaugh’s confirmation as a Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States is a message to women in this country that they do not matter. I demand a government that acknowledges, respects and supports women as much as it does men.”
Earlier in the day, Schumer and Ratajkowski attended the #CANCELKAVANAUGH protest outside the E. Barrett Prettyman Federal Courthouse, with the likes of Lena Durham and Whoopi Goldberg.
At the rally, Schumer fired up demonstrators, saying “let’s stay together, let’s fight, let’s keep showing up.” Ratajkowski flanked Schumer on the stage during her speech.
The protest comes on the heels of the FBI concluding its investigation into the sexual misconduct allegations against Kavanaugh.
Dr. Christine Blasey Ford testified last week that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her during a small gathering when they were teenagers. He has denied all allegations.
A procedural vote on Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court could take place as soon as Friday, and a final up-or-down vote could take place on Saturday afternoon.
