Total Women's Cycling is reporting that the national women's cycling team of Afghanistan has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize by members of the Italian Parliament.
A documentary about the team shows the harassment the 40 women face as they ride their bikes. The trailer for the documentary went viral, and 118 Italian MPs signed a petition to have the Afghan Women's Cycling Team included in a larger nomination of the Bicycle as an agent of change for the Nobel Peace Prize.
