There are certainly clubs for women who ride motorcycles all across North America. Bikes represent a freedom of choice and of lifestyle that many have embraced for years.
For some women around the world, those freedoms are not a given, they are a risk but a risk worth taking.
In October, 2010 Noora Naraghi, organized a women’s motocross race at the club she and her family own. This would not be such an amazing feat except for the fact that Naraghi was acting in defiance of Iran’s cultural and legal system.
Liz Jansen, writing for the The Toronto Star followed the story of Naraghi, one of eight women who took part in that race and highlights the motorcycle revolution sweeping women around the world helping them find themselves, their independence and greater freedom.
