'Women's March' against Trump administration in Washington, other major cities

Protesters also urged voters to oppose Mr Trump and his fellow Republican candidates in the November 3 elections.

Trump and the Republican senators, who represent the majority in the Senate, have stepped up the process to confirm Barrett's nomination before the elections, to which the current President re-runs for the Republican party, after progressive judge Ruth Bader Ginsburg, a pioneer of feminism and reproductive rights, to have died in September.

Other topics in the cartoons include the dueling television town halls by Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden, held at the same time the two candidates were supposed to debate each other; Biden's refusal to say if he'll "pack" the Supreme Court with more members if elected; a controversial New York Post story about Hunter Biden, and Twitter's suppression of it; Trump's return to the campaign trail after recovering from the coronavirus; the NFL's struggles with the virus; and confusing back-to-school plans. Many protesters in Washington said they were angry because Trump's Republicans were ready to elect Barrett to the top United States justices ahead of the November 3rd presidential election.

Ms Barrett's confirmation would give the court a 6-3 conservative majority.

Barrett has made no secret of her strong Catholic beliefs, raising concerns that a Supreme Court dominated by conservatives could overturn abortion rights if she is confirmed by the Senate.

Several events took place in Manhattan Saturday, including one that started with a rally in Washington Square Park before participants marched to join another rally at the New York Stock Exchange.

Carson said he believes Barrett would stick to the Supreme Court's job of "following the rule of law [and] interpreting the Constitution the way it's written".

A similar number of people gathered in Brooklyn, Ginsburg's hometown, with one protester's sign reading: "Ruth Sent Us". "And this is the biggest thing that I know that I could do to help make change".

Rachel O'Leary Carmona, executive director of the Women's March, opened the event by asking people to keep their distance from one another, saying that the only super-spreader event would be the recent one at the White House.

"His presidency began with women marching and now it's going to end with woman voting". "Fight like a girl", said another.
