A pro-Brett Kavanaugh photograph appears to have missed the mark.
In the picture, a group of 13 individuals can be seen standing in front of a large, red bus emblazoned with the slogan, “Women For Kavanaugh.”
One problem: though there are indeed some women in the picture, there are more men.
The photo is currently being criticized online.
Apparently 54% of the “Women for Kavanaugh” are… men.
Because, of course. pic.twitter.com/L7rM2FKZuU

If you're going to do a "women for Kavanaugh" bus maybe make sure that the men don't outnumber the women in the photo opp https://t.co/3HIXcHcTCg

The women are outnumbered seven-to-six. Or eight-to-six if you count the very large and smiling image of Kavanaugh plastered on the back-most part of the right-hand side of the bus.
A project of the Concerned Women of America (CWA), the group defines itself as the nation’s largest women’s public policy organization which “protects and promotes Biblical values and Constitutional principles through prayer, education, and advocacy, according to their website.
In August of this year, CWA announced an eight-state bus tour aimed at convincing uncommitted senators to support the controversial Supreme Court nominee.
Penny Nance, CEO and President of CWA said, in comments to Alabama Today:
This is the moment conservative women and evangelical voters have been waiting for and a huge reason why they voted for President Trump. This grassroots bus tour will utilize CWA state directors, chapter leaders, and volunteers across the nation to rally behind Judge Kavanaugh and demonstrate that he is abundantly qualified to serve on the United States Supreme Court.
