Actress Alyssa Milano, who has become a prominent voice in the #MeToo movement, is attending Thursday’s Senate hearing on the Supreme Court as a guest of Sen. Dianne Feinstein (Calif.), the ranking Democrat on the Judiciary Committee. 

Milano said she traveled from her home in Los Angeles to give support to Christine Blasey Ford, who has accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault.

“I felt like I needed to be here to show solidarity and my support to Dr. Ford for this day that surely will be incredibly difficult for her,” she told reporters.

 

 

She said she vividly remembered Anita Hill’s testimony during Justice Clarence Thomas’s 1991 confirmation hearings.

She predicted the outcome of Kavanaugh’s hearing will be different.

“I think we’re in a different time. I think women are standing together in solidarity more so than we were in ’91. I think women throughout the country are not going to let it be what it was,” she said.
