Pushy Women North and South

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. Check the entries below on previous events and stay tuned for announcements on the next show!

Pushy Women North and South 2014

On Sunday 16 March Catherine Deveny's army of Pushy Women returned to the Thornbury Theatre for a laugh out loud afternoon of storytelling about the humble pushbike. As we've come to expect from the Pushy Women speaking events, the full spectrum of human experience -  love, lust, hate, desire, innocence, wisdom, pain and glory all featured. More than anything else, we were reminded how often a bicycle is hidden in the past, celebrated in the present or yearned for in the future of so many lives, and there is always a story to tell! 

Pushy Women Line Up Announcement

We are so committed to the spreading the joy and accessibility of bike riding to women that in 2014, we are going to straddle the mighty Yarra to make it happen. That’s right, we are not going to attempt to conquer Melbourne’s great divide, we are going to match it!

Pushy Women is our ongoing program of activities and happenings, presented in partnership with Catherine Deveny.  The first pushbike out of the driveway is the Pushy Women NORTH speaking event at the Thornbury Theatre. See 8 women talk for 8 minutes each about bikes and life.
