Ratajkowski informed her fans of the arrest via Instagram on Thursday afternoon.

“Today I was arrested protesting the Supreme Court nomination of Brett Kavanaugh, a man who has been accused by multiple women of sexual assault,” she wrote. “Men who hurt women can no longer be placed in positions of power. 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.”

Amy Schumer was also reportedly arrested. In a video captured by the Daily Caller’s Benny Johnson, a police officer asks Schumer if she wants to be arrested, to which she replies, “Yes.”

Schumer and Ratajkowski were seen addressing a crowd earlier in the day, telling protesters that “A vote for Kavanaugh is a vote saying women don’t matter.”
