Well, actually something maybe a bit like a warm-up or cool down for pilates, rolling her muscles over a hard curved surface. Just the sort of thing my pilates instructor, Dale, likes!
and, for seconds, the eyes have it:
If you don’t know about pilates, you might want to look at this, which shows some exercises for legs on the reformer, a very important piece of equpment in classical pilates. Pilates involves both strengthening and stretching.
Many thanks to Kathy Ward for the video and to Dale, Pete and Diana for the inspiration.
According to the fall issue of Ms, there arem’t any. There are wonderful university courses at itunes U, the article, “YouProf,” points out, but there aren’t any in women’s studies and even very few are by women. A couple of hours searching has led me to the same conclusion, but if you know of something that shows this wrong, please let us know.
Just in terms of the presence of women on the web, Berkeley seems to me an exception; see here and here. You do have to search around a bit. If you know of any others, again please let us know.
The issue of lectures, and particularly course lectures in women’s studies, is different from that of feminist podcasts (which we looked at here and here; see also here), but the same problem is discernible: women and feminism are not represented well at all.
