Turn up your volume ’cause this audio’s O-L-D! In this clip two women, part of an all-dyke Montreal skating crew, talk about what it means to be a female skater. What do you do when you love the hardcore scene and skateboarding, but are totally sick of standing on the sidelines and watching the boys skate? What do you do when a man walks by you skateboarding and tells you a real woman should be wearing red lipstick and standing by her boyfriend’s side? Start a skateboarding crew of your own! As a result of Skater Dykes, these skateboarding ladies feel empowered even when faced with discrimination from passersby and male skaters.
