Bicycle a New Metaphor of Freedom for Afghan Women-via YouTube

Did you know that the bicycle was an instrumental piece in the women’s suffrage movement of the early 20th century? You can read about it here on the National Women’s History Museum’s website. Now think of another country in this day and age where women’s freedoms are restricted due to ideology and religion. Try Afghanistan and see how the bicycle is once again at the heart of women wanting to be free.
