Why Safer Spaces are Important!

For many of us on this wiki, this conversation is old hat. For anyone joining in and being curious about the why of WTF/FTW/W&T/Women's safer spaces, this space will serve as a means of understanding the need. Even if every single moment in a bike collective was filled with people striving toward a safer space as best they could, there would still be a need for WTF night because the people who show up couldn't be expected to know that.

the more you do to make a space accessible to more people, the less it will be exclusively the default demographic that shows up and sticks around.

A good page with an okay primer as to why one might need/want safer spaces is Patriarchy and Bicycle Repair.

Suffice it to say that every bicycle space unless otherwise stated is a de facto "boys club" and many femme / trans folks report feeling more comfortable in safer spaces designed specifically for them.

Ideally, the goal is for an entire collective to participate in a safer space agreement at all times.

Community Bicycle Programs with Women And Trans (sometimes femme) safer spaces
