Climbing like a Girl: An Exemplary Adventure in Feminist Phenomenology

Hypatia 23 (1):9-40 (2008)
  Copy   BIBTEX


This essay uses the phenomenal advent of women's climbing as a paradigm case for integrating feminism and phenomenology, and for analyzing how women experience and evolve free movement and existence. In contrast to the paradigm set by Iris Marion Young's “Throwing like a Girl,” it stresses the category of the lived body over the category of gender, and it reveals how women, by employing and cultivating the body's motility and spatiality, engage and transcend the limits of crux situations.
