Actress Piper Perabo (Notorious, Covert Affairs) was arrested Tuesday morning in Washington, D.C., while protesting at the Senate confirmation hearing for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

"I was just arrested for civil disobedience in the Kavanaugh hearings," Perabo tweeted. "Many citizens before me have fought for the equal rights of women. I can't be silent when someone is nominated to the Supreme Court who would take our equal rights away."

Perabo attached a video of her arrest, where she and several other women can be seen yelling, holding up signs and being dragged out by police.

According to the official Twitter account for the Women's March, an organized effort was put together to disrupt the hearing to protest Kavanaugh's appointment to the Supreme Court, due to his position on abortion and the belief he will roll back women's rights and healthcare laws. "We're disrupting the Kavanaugh hearings every few minutes, with hundreds of women prepared to get arrested to prevent these hearings from moving forward," the Women's March account tweeted.
