Publisher:  Allen & Unwin Type: 


Copyright:  2009 ISBN-13:  9781741756951

Predominately written by the profiled women with additional information provided by authors Edward Winterhalder and Arthur Veno.

Biker Chicks

The world of bikers' clubs has long been shrouded in secrecy, but the role of women in these male bastions is even more mysterious.  Popular images of scantily clad females who are little more than slaves don't do justice to the rich history and culture of the many women who have chosen to ride with their biker men.  Even less press is given to the women who ride in their own right in clubs that celebrate the camaraderie of other women and the freedom and exhilaration of riding powerful motorbikes.

Ever since Motor Maids, the first female motorcycle club, formed in the 1930's with their quaint white gloves and a florish of color on their jackets, women bikers have been turning heads.  And yet today in the male world of the clubs women are seen as mere 'accessories' for male club-members and the rules and protocols they must observe are astonishing, though some wield far more power over their men that it would appear.

Biker Chicks brings together the personal stories of the women - the 'ole ladies', the 'strippers', the 'hang-arounds', the 'biker sluts', the 'mamas' and the 'sweet butts', as well as the experiences of teh all female biker groups--and puts them onto the context of a long entertaining history, detailing the forces and motivations that draw particular women to the bike scene.

Biker Chicks is a unique and timely look into the world that mystifies--sometimes terrifies--the outsider.
