Most read posts of all time

I gave a talk at Carleton University on Monday to their brand new Ethics and Public Affairs program. More about the talk later–“Fitness as a Feminist Issue”–but not surprisingly, in the question period, talk turned to the blog. People asked about our most popular posts and how much they were read and I thought you might be interested too.

Here’s our top ten posts of all time.

If you haven’t read them yet, enjoy!

By contrast here are ten from the bottom bunch. They’re still counted as “top posts” so they’re not the least read. But they have the fewest hits of the ‘top posts.” (Not quite sure how WordPress defines that!) Anyway, go read these too! Maybe share them and spread the word.
