She is a mother of two, a naturalized U.S. citizen who has lived in the United States for 20 years of her life, and who worked as a journalist for the Epoch Times, where she specialised in medical issues since about 2000. Wang had helped researching Epoch Times articles on organ harvesting.
On 20 April 2006, during Chinese President Hu Jintao's visit to the United States, she used her journalist pass to gain access to a White House lawn press briefing. She unfurled protest banners and loudly shouted for over two minutes, by some accounts, during a speech given by Mr. Hu.
She shouted comments in Chinese and English, also directed toward American President George W. Bush, such as "President Bush, stop him from killing" and "President Bush, stop him from persecuting the Falun Gong." CNN and BBC feeds of Hu's visit were interrupted by state censors in China, blacking out the protester's action. Secret Service ushered Wang away from the media platform. Wang's attorney stated that there was no evidence Hu heard the statements uttered, claiming that the scuffles to take away her banner and the attempt to silence her could have caused Hu to pause in his remarks.
The Epoch Times reported that Wang helped research articles on organ harvesting at Sujiatun. She was "very overstressed"," Epoch Times said, "When she saw Bush shake the hand of the Chinese leader, she felt obligated to speak out". At the time of the protest, she was not a US citizen, and could have faced deportation.
After spending the night in jail, Wang was formally charged on 21 April 2006 with "knowingly and willfully intimidating, coercing, threatening or harassing … a foreign official performing his duties," a misdemeanor punishable by up to six months in prison and a fine of $5,000. Bush apologised to the Chinese for the protest incident; Epoch Times also made an apology to the US President.
Wang's statement to reporters said: "What I did was say just a few words at a moment in history. It was an act of conscience and an act of civil disobedience." She was released without bail pending further proceedings.
She was charged with disorderly conduct. On 21 June 2006, the U.S. Court in Washington D.C. dropped all charges against Dr. Wang.
On 5 July 2006, Dr. Wang attended a media conference at the National Press Club with two recently released Falun Gong prisoners by her side to accuse China of secret organ harvesting. "The civilized world must shout to China," said Wang.
