This is an introductory post to inform you what to expect in the month of March as we celebrate the International Women’s Day.
International Women’s Day is celebrated every 8th day of March. This year the theme is #ChooseToChallenge. A challenged world is an alert world. Individually, we’re all responsible for our own thoughts and actions – all day, every day.
We can all choose to challenge and call out gender bias and inequality. We can all choose to seek out and celebrate women’s achievements. Collectively, we can all help create an inclusive world.
From challenge comes change, so let’s all choose to challenge.
As women in motorcycling, we have already ventured into an industry that has for the longest time been for men. An industry that was not prepared for women and still is not prepared for women.
We have no motorcycles designed for women in terms of height and weight, we have no gear designed for women in terms of curves, comfort and fitting. Though we have seen some changes that are creating inclusivity and accommodating women, the industry still remains largely in favour of men.
During the month of March, we will be celebrating women who have chosen to challenge in the motorcycling sector in Kenya.
Here are the categories that we will be celebrating.
- Women Boda boda riders.
- Women Courier riders
- Women Moto mechanics
- Women Riding instructors
- Women Adventure tour guides
- Women Riding gear sellers
- Women Motorcycle sales executives
Stay tuned for the amazing stories of these women. Every week we will bring you three amazing stories on the following platforms.
- On this blog, we will run a series of blogs.
- Twitter – Inked Sisterhood; Throttle Queens; Wamuyu Kariuki;
- On the following Instagram accounts: – Inkedsisterhood ; Women Bikers Association ; Throttle Queens ; I Ride 4 Helmets and Malkia Moto Club
We would also love to hear from you about the women who have chosen to challenge from the sector you work in.
