Take the Wheels

Adventurer extraordinaire and motorcycle enthusiast Mélusine Mallender takes us on a journey through some of the more remote areas of Indonesia, Myanmar, Nepal, Bangladesh, Pakistan and Iran, in search of what freedom really means to women.

She travels by motorcycle, a symbol both of freedom and of masculinity to many, attracting the curiosity of passers-by, men and women alike – but she always travels alone. In this way she not only creates a more favourable environment to interact with the people she meets, but also gets a closer look as to how the women live in each place, what society expects of them, and how they pursue their own freedom.
