The right to vote

IMG_1056Women gained the right to vote 100 years ago today. The bicycle played a fascinating role in the suffrage movement leading up to that, and this book designed for middle schoolers (but a colorful, fun read for all) is one of my very favorite about it.

In honor of the women who came before me, I vote for a better world with my pedals, dollars, ballot, and fork as often is possible.

If interested, find out more about how bicycles still help women ride to freedom in my book, Traveling at the Speed of Bike.
