Woman’s visibility in urban spaces is a key to claim the right to the city. Cycling is a particularly powerful way to do that because it exposes the woman in the traffic. It leaves them vulnerable in a way but changes the way they interact with the city. Regardless of their backgrounds, transportation is a big issue for all women around the world. Women being able to peacefully ride bikes is not a trivial thing.
Fancy Women Bike Ride, the women’s movement, is already triggering big changes in many cities, overcoming differences such as class, religion, ideology, and ethnicity.
