Emily Ratajkowski and Amy Schumer were arrested on Thursday for protesting the Supreme Court nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh, who faces numerous sexual assault allegations.

The duo, along with celebrities Lena Dunham and members of the public, including Democratic Senators Elizabeth Warren and Kristen Gillibrand, joined Thursday’s #CANCELKAVANAUGH protest outside the E. Barrett Prettyman Federal Courthouse in Washington, D.C., near Capitol Hill.

“Today I was arrested protesting the Supreme Court nomination of Brett Kavanaugh, a man who has been accused by multiple women of sexual assault. Men who hurt women can no longer be placed in positions of power,” tweeted Ratajkowski, with a photo of her waving a protest sign that read “Respect Female Existence or Expect Our Resistance.”

A video of Schumer, tweeted by journalist Benny Johnson, showed her answering “Yes” when a police officer asked if she wanted to be arrested. In the scene, the comedian wears a green shirt and black pants and holds an “I believe Anita” sign as she’s led by the officer through the crowd. USA Today reported that Schumer was held in the Hart Senate Office Building on Capitol Hill.
