A Go Fund Me campaign for Ms Briskman, who became something of a national hero after the image found its way into all corners of the internet, has now raised over half of its $100,000 target.

After the photo gained internet fame, Briskman chose to alert her employer, Akima LLC, a government contractor, that she is the woman in the photograph.

Briskman was riding her bike past the presidential caravan October 28 in Sterling, Va. when she was photographed by a White House photographer giving the one-finger salute.

As a reporter in the press pool described the scene, the motorcade "overtook a female cyclist, wearing a white top and cycling helmet, who responded by giving the middle finger".

Three days later, the 50-year-old marketing executive was sacked by her company, government contractor Akima. "I'm thinking, DACA recipients are getting kicked out".

"Juli Briskman is an inspiration to us all", reads the GoFundMe's description. Only one-third of Puerto Rico has power. All proceeds are being donated directly to Juli.

At the time, the 50-year-old said she was escorted from the building and told by her bosses that they wanted her to be professional.

"I really wasn't going to talk about this until I remembered the fellow that I actually flagged to the company that he had written very obscene things in someone else's conversation on Facebook", Briskman told Megyn Kelly in an interview on NBC.

"I think we have a big problem in this country", she said to the audience's applause. Porn company xHamster put an open offer on Twitter for her to join their marketing and social media team, following the long tradition of adult entertainment companies trying to catch a ride on pop culture events. "So they were calling flipping him off 'obscene'".
