Joe Biden’s Supreme Court nominee Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson on Tuesday claimed that she could not provide a definition of the word “woman” while being questioned by Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) during her confirmation hearing in the Senate Judiciary Committee.
“Can you provide a definition of the word ‘woman’?” the Tennessee Senator asked Judge Jackson.
“Can I provide a definition? No, I can’t,” Judge Jackson responded.
“You can’t?” Senator Blackburn then asked.
“Not in this context,” Jackson claimed.
“I’m not a biologist,” the Supreme Court nominee added. Video Below

Meanwhile, the month of March marks Women’s History Month.
According to Women’s History Month:
Women’s History Month had its origins as a national celebration in 1981 when Congress passed Pub. L. 97-28 which authorized and requested the President to proclaim the week beginning March 7, 1982 as “Women’s History Week.” Throughout the next five years, Congress continued to pass joint resolutions designating a week in March as “Women’s History Week.”
In 1987 after being petitioned by the National Women’s History Project, Congress passed Pub. L. 100-9 which designated the month of March 1987 as “Women’s History Month.”
Between 1988 and 1994, Congress passed additional resolutions requesting and authorizing the President to proclaim March of each year as Women’s History Month. Continued Below
Since 1995, presidents have issued a series of annual proclamations designating the month of March as “Women’s History Month.”
These proclamations celebrate the contributions women have made to the United States and recognize the specific achievements women have made over the course of American history in a variety of fields.
In another exchange on Tuesday between Senator Blackburn and Judge Jackson, the Tennessee Senator inquired over Jackson’s opinion on “physical differences between men and woman”.
