Kat Jungnickel has written a book about Radical 19th Century Victorian woman inventors. Bikes & Bloomers showcases the work of 8 cyclists and the great new forms of cycle wear and patents they created in response to their restrictions of freedom and movement. At the launch, Kat invited fellow experts in the field to talk about the book in relation to their own work, answering the questions of why do stories or representations of women cycling matter, why is it important? This is a (slightly edited) LIVE recording of the panel held at Look mum no hands! on 49 Old St on Wednesday 18th April.
