The Passage of a Few People Through a Rather Brief Moment in Time #290 - A Woman's Places

03.11.15

One or more persons during a certain period drop their usual motives
for movement and action, their relations, their work and leisure activities,
and let themselves be drawn by the attractions of the terrain and the
encounters they find there.

It's a bike ride.

Started by user nathansnider and user theroyalacademy.

It meets every Wednesday at 8:30pm
at California Donuts #21.
We ride at 9pm.
We endeavor to return before the last red line trains (around midnight),
but it is generally not possible. Please plan accordingly.

On this bike ride, you might expect:
- inconvenient passageways
- oblique strategies
- Oulipian constraints
- disorientation
- reorientation
- "cover" versions of other people's rides, performed with amateurish enthusiasm
- amateurish enthusiasm
- pool halls
- bowling alleys
- karaoke
- geocaching
- full moon picnics
- traffic median tea parties
- rivers that no longer exist
- smell tourism
- Couchwick v2.0

Furthermore:
- usually 20-35 miles
- usually some hills
- a medium pace (probably not for beginners; certainly not a hustle)
- few stops, short stops
- but we're not in a rush; we don't need to run every light
- victory donuts!

This week:

A Woman's Places


The construction of gender does not just occur at the level of the individual --
written out upon lives and bodies -- but also in public spaces. The social effects
of gender relations can and do get writ large as spatial relations in the city.
All too often this manifests itself as spaces unwelcoming or unsafe for women.
While this may, for some, conjure up images of dark streets in bad neighborhoods,
so-called "high" places such as, especially, museums have been notoriously
unwelcoming towards female artists as well. The stakes may be different but
the effect can often be the same: a closing down of physical or social mobility,
a lessening of opportunities and self-worth.

This week on the ride we visit sites where women have carved out spaces for
themselves, individually or collectively. Some were either literally constructed at
the behest or for the purpose of a woman or women; some have had their
meaning and memory altered through their use by women. While not all still
stand nor serve the same purposes, they can stand as reminders of the multiplicity
of possibilities when women have space to shine.

(Approx. 25 miles, all paved, not completely flat but we're certainly not going out
of our way to hit any hills)

All cities are geological;
you cannot take three steps
without encountering ghosts
bearing all the prestige of their legends.
