The powerful moment, broadcast live on TV, resonated with many Americans, who felt Kavanaugh should not sit on the high court, given the multiple sexual assault allegations against him stemming from the 1980s. "Don't look away from me!" Along with her white outfit, Archila will be sporting a pin given to her by Ocasio-Cortez that states, "Well behaved women rarely make history".
