The correct answer is C.
The book “Wheels of Change” by Sue Macy seeks to show the reader the true meaning and importance that being able to ride a bicicle had to women of the nineteenth century.
Macy explains that women were imprisoned by law, social conventions, and even by their clothing. They were controlled by the men in their lives in every aspect.
So, for them, a bike was not just one more device, like it was for men. For women, being able to ride a bike was a representation of freedom.
