As Brett Kavanaugh enters his first week on the Supreme Court bench, a website URL bearing his name has become an online resource for victims of sexual assault and abuse.

The website, titled BrettKavanaugh.com, features a black-and-white picture of the Supreme Court covered with the words "we believe survivors."

"The start of Brett Kavanaugh's tenure on the Supreme Court may look like a victory for one interest group or another," the site's homepage reads. "But, more importantly, it is putting a national focus on the issue of sexual assault—and how we as a country can and should do more to prevent it and to support those who have experienced it."

The site links to national organizations like the National Sexual Violence Resource Center, End Rape on Campus, and Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network.

The page also commends the thousands of survivors who have come forward during Kavanaugh's confirmation process, saying: "We applaud your bravery. We believe you."

The website is a project of the organization Fix The Court, which focuses on judicial reform in terms of accountability and transparency.

President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee became the center of national debate when three women accused the judge of sexual assault or misconduct when he was in high school and college.

His first accuser, Christine Blasey Ford, accused Kavanaugh of pinning her down on a bed, groping her and trying to remove her clothes when he was 17 and she was 15. Ford detailed the incident in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee, telling lawmakers that she would never forget the "indelible laughter" of Kavanaugh and his friend, Mark Judge, when the alleged attack was taking place.

Two other women, Deborah Ramirez and Julie Swetnick, also came forward with accusations of sexual misconduct but they were never called before the committee.

During the Kavanaugh hearings, Trump, along with prominent Republican senators, questioned the timing of the allegations and why these women did not report the incidents sooner to the authorities.

The interrogation went viral, prompting the hashtag "Why I Didn't Report" to trend on social media, with women from around the country writing about why they kept their assault a secret. Many of the responses discussed feeling shame and worrying that no one would believe them.

Kavanaugh's confirmation was delayed to allow for an FBI investigation into the accusations, but ultimately he was confirmed by the Senate by a vote of 50 to 48. Kavanaugh was sworn in Monday in an official ceremony, during which Trump apologized to the judge for the "terrible pain and suffering that you have been forced to endure."
