Join RAW+KYB as we premiere the new documentary Ovarian Psycos. Activist/scholar Maria Cotera will introduce the film, and refreshments will be provided. This event is free of charge. Tickets are required.
Ovarian Psycos was established in the summer of 2010 as a response to the legacy of oppression dating back 500 years that has created conditions in which many of us come from broken homes and are survivors of abuse. We choose the bicycle not only because it allows us to exercise our bodies, while trying to reverse the cultural shift from a profoundly respectful relationship with Tonantzin, Mother Earth, into a concrete barren urban jungle, but also because we’re broke inner-city oppressed peoples and cycling is our only means of transportation. For these and many other reasons, we recognize how vulnerable we are on bicycles and work to empower womxn to take back the streets with an understanding that sisters have our back.
We are an all womxn of color bicycling brigade cycling for the purpose of healing our communities physically, emotionally and spiritually by addressing pertinent issues. We envision a world where women are change agents who create and maintain holistic health in themselves and their respective communities for present and future generations.
