The woman who stripped naked and spread her legs for a political stunt at an antifa riot in Portland is a sex worker. The stunt was widely praised in media as brave and stunning.
From The Oregonian:
It was 1:45 a.m. Dave Killen, a photographer for The Oregonian/OregonLive, was nearing the end of his shift covering the nightly protests in Portland.
In the five hours he had been out, Killen and a group of protesters had been pushed by police northward on Third Avenue, he said, to its intersection with Taylor Street. Officers stood across the intersection, facing the group of protesters.
