"Women's experiences aren't documented, especially not women's or trans experiences with bicycles. That's part of the reason I thought it was important to make this zine ... however small, it's a piece of history, and is important to bike culture." Sadie Sigford goes on to provide a list of questions that she asked herself in assembling this zine, a timeline history of bicycling and women, women's bike races, personal stories, the first world-record-setting African American athlete Major Taylor, ratios of women to men riders by county with some analysis and how to change that, bicycling in Africa, getting hit by a car, a DIY messenger bag pattern, why to have space for women and transgender people in bike shops, bike touring, and cars and feminism.
What World & Whose Dream is a truly comprehensive look at the role that women play in the culture and world of bicycling. And everyone can learn from and appreciate that.
