Taking the Lane #4: Sexy on the Inside

by Elly Blue Author

In this new issue of the feminist journal of contemporary cycling, we are treated to one long essay from Elly Blue reflecting on the intersections of third wave feminism and bicycling, through the lens of the world's first all-female mini bicycle dance troupe, The Sprockettes. Through a series of original interviews and comparative experiences, from Slut Walks to personal girl empowerment, from finding worth in sexual gratification to liberatory freedom, Taking the Lane continues to find mature reflections on culture with a solid head to sift through difficult subjects.
