Seventy-five women who have known Brett Kavanaugh personally throughout his life came to show public support for him after he was accused of committing sexual assault during a high school party in the 1980s by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford.
The group of 75 women gathered in a Washington, DC, hotel and argued that the allegations conflicted with their own experiences with the Supreme Court nominee, the Washington Free Beacon reported.

“Women from every phase of Judge Kavanaugh’s life, those who know him best, have stepped forward to say that the allegation being leveled against him is false and we are proud to stand with Brett,” said Sarah Fagen, a former colleague of Kavanaugh’s from the George W. Bush administration.
Fagen shared her story of Kavanagh ensuring his colleagues’ psychological safety in the aftermath of the terrorist attacks of September 11. “The days after 9/11 in the White House were long and stressful, but Brett took the time to follow up and make sure I was doing okay,” Fagen said. “For me, running into Brett Kavanaugh was a gift.”
Maura Fitzgerald, Kavanaugh’s friend who also dated him while the two were college students, said she has known Kavanaugh for 35 years and felt it was important to share her experiences of his character with a wider audience, calling him a good friend and family man.
