TV University: Where my girls at?
The Huffington Post has a piece up today called "TV University: Meet The Faculty". It's a clever idea–a faculty roster for a university comprised entirely of television (and some film) characters teaching courses that play to their fictional strengths. So Dr. Who is the Dean of the Science Department, Stringer Bell teaches Transitional Business Management, and so on. The only problem? Out of 96 faculty members, only four are women–they even have a dude teaching Women's Studies. Come on folks, we can do better! (And I mean this literally.)
I posted this on the Bitch Facebook page, and we've had tons of great nominations so far for women faculty members. A sampling:
• Leslie Knope, Civics
• Buffy Summers, Self Defense
• LaDonna Batiste-Williams, Bar Management
• Nancy Botwin, Horticulture
• Claire Huxtable, Commercial Law
• Sun Kwan, ESL
• Zoe Alleyne, Advanced Military Strategy
• Liz Lemon, Screenwriting and Clowning
• Mercedes Jones, Voice
The suggestions have been so good (and so fun to think up) that I'm putting this to the blogosphere as well. Which female television characters would you like as your TV University professors?
