‘It is easier to fall for anything than stand for something’ – International Women’s Day

Acknowledging the great things women do in life is the start of gender parity. I will always be grateful for my Mum’s strength bringing up three boys and how she modeled learning and determination to complete a degree while providing us with a happy home. I thought I would bring to light a film that brings together my passion for cycling and gender parity.

Breaking the rules of a traditional female Afghani life, Afghan Cycles follows the story of a small group of adventurous women seeking strength through cycling and each other. While the film is focused on their adventures cycling, it also gives a valuable insight into what daily life entails for women in Afghanistan.
