Woman charged in Capitol melee says Proud Boys recruited her

FILE – In this Sept. 26, 2020, file photo, a woman does the Pledge of Allegiance as members of the Proud Boys and other right-wing demonstrators rally in Portland, Ore. Alex DiBranco, executive director of the Institute for Research on Male Supremacism, said there are differences among Proud Boys chapters over whether to embrace women as Proud Girls or not, even as the group as a whole has become more hostile to women’s auxiliaries over the past couple of years.
