Protestors turned up at the Senate building to challenge Kavanaugh's nomination after three women accused him of sexual misconduct.

Police have said they arrested 302 people during the demonstrations. A video captured at the scene shows the two actresses being detained after an officer asks if they want to be arrested.

"A vote for Kavanaugh is a vote saying women don't matter," Schumer told the crowd gathered outside the Supreme Court. "No matter how this goes, they cannot keep us down."

An initial Senate vote on Kavanaugh's nomination is scheduled for Friday, and a final vote could happen over the weekend.
