Here’s what you need to know to join the protests happening this weekend against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

Women running for Congress is a good thing: “Looking beyond 2018, more than four-in-ten Americans say they personally hope a woman will be elected president in their lifetime.” (Pew Research Center)

High crimes and misdemeanors: “The Constitution’s standard for impeachment is ‘Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.’ The standard is now met.” (The New York Times)

The unprecedented diversity of this year’s set of female gubernatorial candidates: “Come November, voters will see the most diverse set of female candidates for governor in the country’s history.” (The Lily)

More than 500 migrant children are still separated from their families: “A status report filed Thursday shows that as of August 20, 528 migrant children were still in government-contracted shelters. The court-ordered deadline to reunite these children with their parents was July 26.” (The Cut)

Stormy Daniels, feminist hero: "Hers is not a female archetype that has historically garnered much respect, trust or sympathy. Yet here she is, an imperfect, entirely self-possessed woman telling her story with clarity and without shame. And here we are, actually listening to her.” (The New York Times)

And, a bit of wisdom from one of our favorites illustrators.
