Seven Activists Create ‘Performance Art’ Outside Justice Barrett’s House
FALLS CHURCH, Virginia—Seven activists quietly walked in circles while dressed as “handmaids” near Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett’s house on May 11.
The activists wore red robes, white bonnets, and black face masks, a reference to The Handmaid’s Tale, a novel about a dystopian America controlled by religious extremists who oppress women.
The activists all appeared to be women, with one exception. They all spoke with a similar clipped, angry tone.
“Please don’t write and release and overturn Roe v. Wade,” the leader of the protesters said. “If nothing else, we have a right to express our displeasure at their tromping all over stare decisis.”
