More than 900 women have signed an open letter in support of Deborah Ramirez.

Several hundred women who graduated from Yale University have shown support for the second woman to accuse Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct by way of signing an open letter, according to The Hill.

Deborah Ramirez has publicly said Kavanaugh exposed himself to her during a college party during her freshman year.

> "We are coming forward as women of Yale because we have a shared experience of the environment that shaped not only Judge Kavanaugh’s life and career, but our own," reads the letter, which was published on Medium on Monday.

>

> "We are committed to supporting all women who have faced sexual assault, not only at Yale, but across the country," the letter said, before demanding that the new allegations against Kavanaugh be "thoroughly investigated" and that a confirmation vote be delayed until the charges are probed.

The Hill reported that over 900 women had signed the letter as of Monday afternoon.

Kavanaugh has denied all allegations leveled against him:

> Kavanaugh has denied the charges from Deborah Ramirez, calling them a smear. They were made in a report published Sunday by The New Yorker. It noted that at least two Democratic offices are investigating the incident.

> The report was published a week after Christine Blasey Ford came forward publicly to accuse Kavanaugh of sexual assault while the two were in high school. Kavanaugh has also denied her charges and is scheduled to testify along with Ford on Thursday before the Senate Judiciary Committee.
