Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

In a tweet, the self-described Democratic Socialist noted that Archila lived in her district, and called her "living proof that the courage within all of us can change" the world.

Just as she does with the parent group, Archila serves as co-executive director at the Center for Popular Democracy Action Fund.

In the same confrontation, while Flake stood almost captive in the elevator elevator, Maria Gallagher, 23, shouted through tears: 'I was sexually assaulted and nobody believed me.

Flake, a key swing vote in Kavanaugh's confirmation process, ignited a firestorm after he voted "yes" to advance the nominee to the full Senate with the condition that an Federal Bureau of Investigation probe would briefly investigate an accusation of sexual misconduct against Kavanaugh.

The Queens woman said she voted for Ocasio-Cortez and helped organize a protest of the Trump administration's child-separation policy.

Archila made headlines in September after she and another woman blocked the doors of a Capitol Hill elevator to speak with then-Sen.

Following Kavanaugh's confirmation, Archila issued a statement, in which she wrote, "Earlier this week, I shared my survivor story for the first time in front of Senator Jeff Flake's office, and I know that I am not alone".

In the video, Ocasio-Cortez tells Archila that she bought them matching pins with the message "well-behaved women rarely make history".

Archila also said that she has "never felt so proud of voting for someone as when I voted for Alexandria".

Freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) invited one of the women who confronted Sen. "Look at me, and tell me that it doesn't matter what happened to me - that you will let people like that go into the highest court of the land". I told it because I recognized in Dr. Ford's story that she is telling the truth.

"I would not have ever told my story otherwise - I hadn't in 30 years", she said. What you are doing is allowing someone who actually violated a woman to sit on the Supreme Court'.

'That's what happened to me, and that's what you are telling all women in America, that they don't matter, ' she said, sobbing.
