In partnership with Bike East Bay, we are co-hosting the Women Bike Book Club in 2017! Bike East Bay's Women Bike program enters its second year of bringing women and gender nonconforming folks together in social settings to share experiences and resources with each other.
All are invited to discuss biking, feminism, and the intersection of the two. Join us on the second Thursday of each month at 6:00pm. We'll focus on a different book or film each month, with a few guest speakers and activities along the way.
For September, we are switching gears (get it?!) and showing a film. WADJDA is the story of a 10-year-old girl living in a suburb of Riyadh, the capital of Saudi Arabia. Wadjda is fun loving, an entrepreneur and always pushing the boundaries of what she can get away with. She sees a beautiful green bicycle for sale in her neighborhood, and decides she will try to raise the money to buy it herself. But Wadjda's mother won't allow it, fearing repercussions from a society that sees biking as inappropriate for girls.
Upcoming meetings of the Women Bike Book Club: Oct 12, November 9, and December 14 at the Golden Gate Branch (5606 San Pablo Ave).
