Woman, Held up to Public Ridicule for Riding a Bike in Man’s Clothing (1868)

On Monday the Pilori, a Paris paper printed in red, made its debut. The principal people held up to public ridicule were M Jules favre for his ambition, Miss Cora Pearl for riding on a velocipede in man’s clothing and ‘M F,’ who horsewhipped a little girl for chaffing Miss Cora.
