I really enjoyed this book. It‘s interesting how women have been treated throughout history. Even today being a woman can be difficult.

In the beginning of this book, I wasn't sure how relevant it would be. The first chapter is dense with stats and I just wasn't sure if those numbers were at all applicable in 2022. But when I hit the second chapter, I realized that very little has changed for women in America. The section on abortion rights was particularly bizarre to read, realizing that American women in 1991 had MORE reproductive rights than we currently do. It's so depressing.

Readergrrl In high school in the 80s, I remember learning about the Women‘s Rights Movement and the attempted passing of the ERA. I felt so lucky to be alive in a time when it seemed that women had moved so far ahead and hopeful that the future would see even more progress. Now, my daughter is in HS and I cannot say the same anymore. Seems bizarre that the dystopian reads of that decade don‘t seem so farfetched anymore. 2w

Absolutely enjoyed this collection of queer sci-fi bike shorts! Even the ones that were so-so were a lot of fun. I adored the one that took the magical feeling of not having to stop for any red lights and turned it into literal magic. I'm pretty sure I saw someone post about this book on Litsy, and I'm super glad they did! I'll absolutely be ordering some of the other bike collections. #LGBTQ #Bike #Feminist #ShortStory

Since this is an anthology, there is something for everyone. There is a lot of diversity from the types of women to their accomplishments. The art styles also vary! I enjoyed seeing all the different types of art. All the contributors are either female or nonbinary which adds to the inspiring narrative of the collection.
