Meet at Visitor Center. Women moving towards freedom and independence through the bicycle and motorcycle. "The greatest development to bring women closer to freedom and independence was the invention of the bicycle." Susan B. Anthony 1896 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. The bicycle became a symbol for the struggle to vote. Be inspired as historian Bruce Kagan will take you on "the road less traveled," reviewing the development of the bicycle and motorcycle and highlighting key biographies of women who dared to make these machines part of their lives. Their journey elevated and changed society. This event is cancelled and will be postpone to a later date.
