Bike riding in traffic and women in academia compared

Great post on the Canadian feminist academia blog: “You know how a woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle? Well, I was riding into the office on my bicycle just yesterday, and I was thinking, instead, how riding a bicycle in traffic is like being a female academic. Consider it!” Read/ride on here.

I love the examples. Terrific work, Hook and Eye.

  1. I like this a lot! especially because being a cyclist in traffic is such a source of pride–virtuous courage to feel proud of. It seems psychologically useful to think of ourselfs in this way.
