Wheelwomen at Work showcases one aspect of Christine's broader research on the history of women's bicycling. Tentatively titled “The Modern Remedy: Bicycling and the Woman Question,” Christine's disseration explores the multifaceted ways nineteenth-century women used bicycling as an activist strategy to challenge Victorian constraints and shape the transition to Modernity on their own terms.
