Want to know what an 1885 photo of a wax mannequin on a tricycle tells us about the dress reform movement? Or hear how local residents in 1890s Malden reacted to the sight of a lady cyclist’s bloomers? Listen to me discuss these artefacts and other exciting finds from The Women’s Library in an interview about the upcoming “Cycling to Suffrage” exhibit on The Bike Show, Resonance Radio, Monday 12 March, 6:30-7:00.
Also on this episode of The Bike Show, a discussion of current issues in women’s cycling advocacy and safety.
