The Pushy Women speaking event was initiated by writer, comedian, atheist postergirl and commuter cyclist evangelist Catherine Deveny in 2012 as a show at the Malthouse Theatre featuring 8 women talking for 8 minutes each about bikes. Since then the event has grown to a 300 seat event at the Thornbury Theatre in 2013 and this year straddled the great Melbourne divide, staging events both NORTH and SOUTH of the river. Some of the women speaking are dedicated riders, some have never been on a bike. It's a feel good afternoon of talking, laughing and celebrating women's unique take on the world of riding.
