Sisters in the Wind . . . the road less traveled, Adults **Virtual**

Thursday, June 13, 7:00 – 8:30 PM

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. It also changed the way women viewed themselves. In the late 1800s, early 1900s “The New Woman” started riding these “freedom machines” and could for the first time venture out without a male chaperon. Now women could exercise in fresh air in public. These new activities necessitated a change in women’s dress. Long Victorian dresses, corsets, and bustles were replaced by form fitting outfits. Lady motorcyclists wore leather pants and jackets. The bicycle became a symbol for the struggle for the vote. Slip into your gear, strap on your helmet, and join the “Sisters in the Wind … the road less traveled!” Let’s Ride!
