How the Bicycle Helped Usher in the Women’s Rights Movement (Circa 1890)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LPLJgkVsXpE The early history of the bicycle did not promise great things—or anything, really—for women at the dawn of the 19th century.

Made of wood, the “hobby horses” and velocipedes of cycling’s first decades rolled on iron wheels. Their near-total lack of suspension led to the epithet “b...
