The head of the private high school attended by a woman who has accused Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of assaulting her issued a statement in support of the accuser.

Meanwhile, about 200 graduates of the all-girls Holton-Arms School in Bethesda have signed a draft letter of support for the woman, according to the Huffington Post, and actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus tweeted that she signed it.

The Washington Post reported Sunday that Christine Blasey Ford, a 51-year-old research psychologist in Northern California, is alleging that Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her more than three decades ago, when they were high school students in suburban Maryland.

Kavanaugh has denied the allegation, and both have said they would testify before Congress. The Senate Judiciary Committee has a vote on Kavanaugh’s appointment scheduled for Thursday.

Kavanaugh attended the private all-boys Georgetown Preparatory School. Ford was a student at the all-girls Holton-Arms School.

Susanna A. Jones, head of Holton-Arms, issued a statement late Sunday saying that one of the school’s alumnae had made the allegation and added: " In these cases, it is imperative that all voices are heard. As a school that empowers women to use their voices, we are proud of this alumna for using hers."

Here’s the statement in full:

In a recent article, The Washington Post describes an alleged assault of one of our alumnae by Supreme Court nominee Brett M. Kavanaugh that occurred in the early 1980s, while she was a student at Holton-Arms. In these cases, it is imperative that all voices are heard. As a school that empowers women to use their voices, we are proud of this alumna for using hers.
