Pedal Power - Trading Wheels for Wings

Women's rights activist, Susan B. Anthony, is credited with saying of the bicycle: “Let me tell you what I think of bicycling. I think it has done more to emancipate women than anything else in the world. It gives women a feeling of freedom and self-reliance. I stand and rejoice every time I see a woman ride by on a wheel ... the picture of free, untrammeled womanhood.”

This presentation will explore the questions: How did an invention meant to replace the horse for transportation become a tool for women's emancipation? And, how does it continue to be
a driving force for social change?
