Bicycles: On the Path to Women’s Rights
What did bicycles have to do with the fight for women’s rights? In this presentation, historian Allison Lange will talk about how, in the 1890s, women embraced the bicycle and the freedom of movement that came with it. While their bloomers and independence made critics anxious, many women used bicycles to seek new opportunities.
