Screening of Afghan Cycles Documentary Film
How far would you go to ride your bicycle?
Join us to celebrate International Women's Day with a special screening event, featuring the documentary film, Afghan Cycles. We are honoured to partner with the Vancouver Chapter of CW4WAfghan, who will host a Q&A period after the movie, share personal experience and discuss further the challenging situation of women in Afghanistan, in relation to cycling.
About the Film:
Following a new generation of young Afghan women cyclists, Afghan Cycles uses the bicycle to tell a story of women’s rights - human rights - and the struggles faced by Afghan women on a daily basis, from discrimination to abuse, to the oppressive silencing of their voices in all aspects of contemporary society. These women ride despite cultural barriers, despite infrastructure, and despite death threats, embracing the power and freedom that comes with the sport.
