Old female bikers giving the finger
After years of fighting for equality, European women will be finally getting equality, but it's not what they wanted. The European courts have ruled that lower motorcycle (and car) insurance for women is illegal and constitutes a discrimination; towards men.

So, starting the 21st of December 2012, women will be paying more for their insurance, some up to 40% more, bringing them to the same level as men. It doesn't matter that female riders are safer and have fewer accidents then men, it's a discrimination. So have ruled the courts.

IMHO, it also means that the courts should rule out higher insurance fees towards drunks, since that's discrimination as well...but then who am I? Not a scholar... I bet you the insurance companies are happy.
