Fixing bicycles is about Smithies learning a set of life skills
that will continue to empower them for decades to follow. So many
women have never been given a wrench, or been encouraged to fix
something themselves. The resources at Bike Kitchen provide an
extraordinary opportunity to affirm women’s abilities in the
traditionally male field. If given the institutional support Bike
Kitchen could become a hub of powerful connections across intellectual and practical disciplines.
