Women Belong on Scooters
At the same time the most practical and the cheapest form of transportation, the scooter is, in many places, the symbol of coming-of-age (See Dating and Motorscooters).
The motorscooter is freed from the stereotypical role of the male domited motorcycle world.
In Bangladesh, the scooter provides the means for women to play a major role.“a whole generation of role models who are having an impact on their sons and daughters. In the local governments, they may still be in the minority, but they will have influence. From the home to the roads to the market place, these women are making a tremendous change in society.” From Women on Motor Scooters: The Road to Success in Bangladesh
