Being a woman in a patriarchal society can be challenging, especially when we have a passion for an activity traditionally reserved to men. Even in the 21st century, many women cannot come out and simply do what they love.
The ladies of WIMA (Women's International Motorcycle Association) Nepal are calling all women out there to step out of their comfort zone and follow their dreams. Their mission throughout this ride is to encourage women to challenge societal bias and live freely their passion.
By tackling the Upper Mustang, one of the most remote regions of the world and challenging ride, they will raise awareness that women are strong and can do anything they want. They hope to inspire more women to join the movement and indirectly promote tourism in their beloved country.
While WIMA Nepal is working hard to find local sponsors, they are still lacking funds to make this ride happen, and FreeW is therefore joining forces to crowdfund this ride. The target is to raise 1500 euros by October 17th, for a departure on Oct 21st.
