1913 - Test Law Prohibiting Women on Motorcycles

The Washington Times

September 15 1913

A test case to determine whether women can be prohibited from riding on motorcycles with men will come up in Police Court tomorrow, when F.S. Song, of the National Motorcycle Club, who was arrested June 6 in Rock Creek Park, will be tried for carrying a woman on his motorcycle without a permit.

Attorney W.E. Ambrose, representing the defendant, contends that there is sex discrimination on the part of Major Sylvester in issuing permits only to men.
