Program Description

Event Details

Certain adventurous women chose a different path to freedom and independence by riding bicycles and motorcycles. Riding these machines challenged social mores and led to a change in how society viewed women and how some women viewed themselves. In the late 1800s, and early 1900s women started riding these “freedom machines” and were able to go outside without a male chaperone and to exercise in public.
