This is Tunisia’s women-only motorcycle club

Members of the ‘Queen Bikers’ club ride together to challenge social stereotypes

and encourage more women to join in

Location: Tunis, Tunisia

(SOUNDBITE) (Arabic) MEMBER OF ‘QUEEN BIKERS’ MOTORCYCLE CLUB, KHADIJA HSAINI, SAYING:”There are more than 300 women who have a motorcycle driving license in Tunisia and do not practice this sport because they do not feel safe, or because they can’t find clubs that they can belong to, because they don’t want to drive with men and want an all-female group. So, this is our goal, to establish a club for women only.”

(SOUNDBITE) (Arabic) MEMBER OF ‘QUEEN BIKERS’ MOTORCYCLE CLUB, WAFA KHALIFA, SAYING:”The idea came when we were all separated. Each woman owned a motorcycle, but was alone. Khadija came and gathered us. She looked for us on social media and found every person in the area. Then she sent messages asking why we were so far from each other. We were all very happy with this initiative and having an all-female motorcycle club is great.”
