Biker Chicks: The Magnetic Attraction of Women to Bad Boys and Motorbikes

Front Cover
Allen & Unwin, 2009 - Motorcycle gangs - 268 pages
"The male-dominated world of bikers' clubs has long been shrouded in secrecy, but the role of women in these bastions of testosterone 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 men, or ride in their own right. Biker Chicks brings together numerous personal stories and puts them into context with a thoroughly entertaining history. There's a detailed exploration into the forces and motivations that draw particular women to the bike scene, and on a wider scale, an analysis of what attracts both women and men to its 'Bad Boy' culture."--Publisher description.
