The hashtag has gathered momentum in the wake of the sexual misconduct allegations against Brett Kavanaugh, President Trump's candidate for the US Supreme Court. He denies all the allegations against him.Women began sharing their #WhyIDidntReport stories after Trump dismissed the claims and questioned why Christine Blasey Ford, who says a drunk, teenage Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her at a high school party in the 1980s, did not immediately report the attack.Mr Kavanaugh denies the allegations, calling them "completely false".Mr Kavanaugh, who has been accused of improper behaviour by at least three women, is due to testify before the US Senate's judiciary committee on Thursday.Delevingne, 26, did not name her attacker in her tweet on Thursday, however last October she accused disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein of inappropriate sexual behaviour.In a post on Instagram, she claimed Weinstein invited her to meet him at a hotel to discuss a potential film role, before asking her to kiss another woman in front of him.She wrote: "I was so hesitant about speaking out....I didn't want to hurt his family. I felt guilty as if I did something wrong.
