Get out of their way! The Bosozoku girls of Japan mean business, so don’t let their long, flowing hair or their perfectly painted nails fool you. Vocativ unveils the ‘badass biker chicks who play by their own rules’ in one of their short videos, depicting the members of this group as living on the edge of danger, while ‘finding a different path to fulfillment, ditching housewife clichés for the thrill of the open road’.

The name Bosozuku means ‘violent run tribe’ in Japanese and in the 90s the groups had to change their name to Kyushakai to avoid trouble with the police. Now new Japanese laws have made it difficult for gang organizations to operate, with just the uniform of the gang getting you arrested.
