The Gender Gap

The Gender Gap.  This is surely one of the most under reported social justice stories in the news this year.  Did you know that in the U.S., for every 3 men only 1 woman gets around on a bicycle?  Did you know that in London 77% of bike trips are taken by men but only 5% by women?  (Strange stat, I know, but a strange stat for even stranger times).

Well here is a courageous journalist cataloging 21 photos of real women who shatter the stereotype of a what a bicyclist looks like.

  1. These brave, brave women...modern day Rosa Parks, that's what they are. I'm about to grab a friend and start singing "We Shall Overcome."
