  • #IBelieveChristineBlaseyFord: Supporters take to Twitter during Ford-Kavanaugh hearing

Alyssa Milano is becoming quite the political activist.

On Thursday, Milano also shared her memories of the 1991 trial during which attorney Anita Hill accused Judge Clarence Thomas of sexual harassment, telling ABC News, "I remember thinking what a strong, amazing, solid woman she was to come forward".

The B-list actress secured a seat in the tiny Senate room hearing as an invited guest of Sen.

Actress Alyssa Milano was caught filming parts of the hearing of Dr Christine Blasey Ford and Brett Kavanaugh yesterday, breaking the rules of the Senate Judiciary Committee.

She has advocated for victims of sexual misconduct, and spoken about her own experience being sexually assaulted after President Donald Trump - who 19 women accused of sexual misconduct - discredited the allegations against Kavanaugh because Ford hadn't filed a police report 36 years ago. She recently attended the 7-hour long hearing in which Dr. Ford and Kavanaugh answered questions from the the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Milano traveled from Los Angeles to Washington D.C.to witness the historic hearing.

"Anytime people are talking about issues of sex harrasment, assault and abuse, it helps", Milano said, when asked if Blasey Ford's allegations were helpful to the #MeToo movement. She was the first of several women to make an accusation against Kavanaugh, yet many criticised her for not reporting his alleged assault sooner.

Ford believed he was going to rape her and thought he might accidentally kill her.

On Twitter, Philipps wrote that the trial and media scrutiny of Ford had been triggering for her and other survivors of sexual assault.

Alyssa Milano has been around forever. She also called Sen.

At one point, a security guard could be seen warning Milano about using her phone during the hearing, which prohibits videotaping and photography.

Yes, that's what she made a decision to wear to a Senate hearing.

Milano has been openly critical of the Supreme Court nominee and tweeted on Wednesday that she was in the nation's capital "because I don't believe any man's misogyny should take precedent (sic) over a survivor's humanity".
