“When Kathleen Andrews became Edmonton’s first female bus driver in 1975, there were no female bathrooms in the bus depots and no radios on any of the buses.
So Andrews carried a dime in her pocket for emergency calls in phone booths, used the male manager’s private bathroom and picked up the tradition of waving to other passing bus drivers as a signal she was safe.
She faced drunken louts trying to pick her up, male colleagues who questioned her ability to drive and passengers who refused to get onto her bus because she was a woman driver. But Andrews stuck it out behind the steering wheel for three years before moving up the ranks, becoming a pioneer at Edmonton Transit Services while working to bring in a stable income for her two children.”

"CYCLING IS LIKE BOXING: IT’S NOT A GAME. IT’S A HARD, TERRIBLE, PITILESS SPORT THAT DEMANDS VERY GREAT SACRIFICES. ONE PLAYS FOOTBALL, TENNIS, HOCKEY, BUT ONE DOESN’T PLAY AT CYCLING."

— JEAN DE GRIBALDY (via bigringriding)
