If you’ve never been to The Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender and Reproduction at Indiana University, you should go. The Institute houses many thousands of pieces of art, artifacts and photographs. This week, the Institute’s curator, Catherine Johnson-Roehr, kindly allowed me to interview her about Chinese foot binding practices. She showed me several pairs of shoes worn by women who had their feet bound as well as a Chinese painting that depicts women with small bound feet. Watch the video to see and learn for yourself.
Join us this week as we explore the intersections of sex and fashion on MySexProfessor.com.
