On Twitter, the group received several responses, including mockery, for its apparent editing oversight:

The Women’s March wasn’t the only one that seemed to bypass copy editing its statement on Trump’s nominee. Democracy for America did as well:

Judge Amy Coney Barrett, thought by some to be Trump’s pick, was the only female on his reported shortlist.
