Women cycling in India

In a poor country like India cycling to work is common, but it is the men who usually do it. Sure, upper class women cycle for exercise or leisure  but women's emancipation is more for the upper classes. Well-to-do Indian women do drive to work in motor vehicles but women from the poorer classes avoid taking a cycle to work, unlike their men.
Women cycling to work have been spotted in Puducherry or Pondicherry in Tamil Nadu, and Pune in Maharashtra. These photographs have all been taken in Puducherry.

This is a photograph of a girl in a pink salwar kameez cycling in a village near Puducherry.
