Amy Schumer and Emily Ratajkowski were arrested in Kavanaugh protests

Comedian Amy Schumer speaks to the crowd during the Women's March rally Saturday Jan. 21 2017 in Washington. In a global exclamation of defiance and solidarity more than 1 million people rallied at women's marches in the nation's capit

"No matter how this goes, they can not keep us down", Schumer, 37, said during the protest, Variety reports.

With Ratajkowski by her side, Schumer said a "vote for Kavanuagh is a vote saying women don't matter". Among them was Schumer, who is involved with the Time's Up movement against sexual violence and harassment and is a distant relative of the Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer, and the model Emily Ratajkowski. The two famous ladies weren't the only ones to be arrested, they were among 300 other protestors who also got detained.

Additional footage shows them waiting to be processed near a wall with officers.

In another video posted to Twitter by @Theboldtype_z, Schumer made light of her pending arrest by sending a video to a fellow protester's daughter.

Ratajkowski also shared a photo from the protest outside the federal courthouse, claiming she too was arrested. "Men who hurt women can no longer be placed in positions of power", Ratajkowski tweeted.

India vs West Indies | Prithvi Shaw scores century in Test debut
Only Sachin Tendulkar and Parthiv Patel were younger than Shaw when they got their maiden Test half-centuries, but not on debut. Tendulkar was aged 17 when he scored 119 not out against England in 1990, but that was in his ninth Test match.

Schumer appeared in good spirits despite the arrest.

Earlier, thousands of protesters, including women and survivors of sexual assault, marched to the building, chanting "We will not go back" in solidarity with Christine Blasey Ford, who has accused Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her when they were in high school.

Hundreds of people have turned up at the Hart Senate Office Building on Capitol Hill in Washington DC to protest Donald Trump's pick.

Kavanaugh has repeatedly denied the allegations.

Schumer's most recent tweet is from last week when Senator Jeff Flake agreed to ask the FBI to open an investigation into Kavanaugh. The final vote on Brett Kavanaugh is expected to take place on Saturday.
