Former Democratic Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard is weighing in on the response and calling it absurd.
(2/2) … Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson said, “I don’t know.” The hypocrisy and absurdity of this is that she was nominated by President Biden in large part because she is a woman.

As Gabbard noted, the White House touted the fact that Jackson is a woman when they announced her nomination in February.
“President Biden will announce his intent to nominate Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson as Associate Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court. Currently a judge on U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, Judge Jackson is one of the nation’s brightest legal minds. If confirmed, she will be the first Black woman to serve on the Supreme Court,” the White House released in a statement.
