Chinese Foot Binding

Chinese Foot Binding was an ancient practice mostly in rural China in which the feet of young girls were tightly bound to prevent them from growing and then put them into small highly decorative footwear called lotus shoes. This was done as a female with a smaller foot was considered more desirable and had better marriage prospects. The practice was painful and led to lifelong disability.
