HOW ABOUT NOW?
CHINESE FOOT BINDING
For over 1000 years, rich women had their feet bound. The new Republic banned foot binding in 1912, and the custom finally died out in the 1930's.
I bet Cinderella's tiny foot didn't look like this!
The perfectly bound foot was
only 3" long. Women who got their feet bound could not walk, run, or dance.
