Egypt's Women Bikers

Egypt Women Bikers

A group of women are challenging stereotypes by organizing weekly bike rides across the country. They're hoping to empower Egyptian women and break down gender barriers. One of the rider said that "I don't find it strange, women can do anything, i don't understand why it's strange. Maybe because motorbikes are big, (people assume) it needs muscular men to ride them, this is not true".

The women meet at weekends and hit the road together. But it's not just about a joyride, the group's also trying to get women to use motorcycles and scooters in their daily lives.
