TIME’S UP Now: “Women Are Not Interchangeable”

TIME'S UP 2020, Trump Administration

With multiple press outlets reporting President Donald Trump will announce Judge Amy Coney Barrett to replace the late Justice Ruth Ginsburg on the Supreme Court, Tina Tchen, president and CEO of TIME’S UP Now, issued the following statement in response:

“Women are not interchangeable, and Justice Ginsburg is irreplaceable. But more fundamentally: rushing to nominate and confirm a new Supreme Court Justice – while the COVID crisis rages and voting is already underway – is irresponsible and undemocratic.”
