The term 'foot binding' is self-explanatory. It brings to mind images of ancient Chinese rickshaws, dainty shoes and women with feet grotesquely contorted by swaths of bandages, usually accompanied by the reek of infected, gangrenous flesh. Although this picture may invoke revulsion in most of us today, the art of foot binding was in fact once popular and revered in ancient China as a symbol of status and identity. In fact, it has been estimated that approximately 4.5 billion Chinese women had been subjected to this painful art in the last one thousand years.

Another celebration of what I understand is another now extinct practice of female torture... "Foot binding was a custom practiced on young girls and women for approximately one thousand years in China, it resulted in lifelong disabilities for most of its vict*ms. Chinese foot binding involved binding the feet of women in order to shrink them - such that they could fit into 3 inch shoes. The Chinese foot binding shoes were called lotus shoes. Having small feet that were shaped like moon crests, was considered to be the highest form of beauty in women in China. Women with bound feet could not walk and had to totter about. This restricted their movements and led them to be around the house. And thus Chinese foot binding became a symbol of chastity and eroticism."
foot binding was done to create small feet and was considered a status symbol for women of means and actually only done for about 100 years a very small period of time in china's history.
"The barbaric practice of foot binding in China began in the 10th century. It was practiced on young girls as young as 6 yrs old. Feet were wrapped in tight bandages and broken so they couldn’t grow. Tiny feet were a sign of prestige, beauty and wealth. For centuries, women suffered terrible pain in the hopes of marrying into a better future." Reminded me of a Snowflower and the Secret Fan by Lisa See.
WTF???? FOOT BINDING IN CHINA **** YUK
Absolutely unreal...The practice of foot binding in China has been banned, of course, but a few women remain that are testament to what was... poor thing. There are no words to say, to explain how awful this must have been for the young girls who had to endure this so that they could marry someone wealthy. :o/
The Chinese tradition of binding the feet of women who could afford the procedure and then afford not having to actually stand for more than a few minutes at a time started in the 10th century and was still practiced until the early 20th century by all classes of women whose husbands greatly enjoyed these tiny lotus-shaped feet. During the Qing dynasty, it was even common practice to involve bound feet in sexual acts, adding to the desire of men wanting women with bound feet. Before the arch of the foot was fully formed (before the age of 14), a young girl would have almost every bone of her foot broken before an extremely tight binding was wrapped around the now squished foot to have the bones repair themselves in this new, smaller form. A foot that was roughly three inches was the “ideal” size. The problem of this act, not only the restrictions of movement, was infection. While the wealthy could afford to have fresh daily bindings and inspections, the poor were restricted if they were binding their feet and would subsequently have more problems with infection. Toe nails were cut as short as possible before binding and routinely checked but in-grown toe nails happened anyway. Sometimes later in life a woman could have her feet unbound, but severe deformities would still prevail.
"I’ve got two daughters who will have to make their way in this skinny-obsessed world, and it worries me, because I don’t want them to be empty-headed, self-obsessed, emaciated clones; I’d rather they were independent, interesting, idealistic, kind, opinionated, original, funny - a thousand things, before ‘thin’. And frankly, I’d rather they didn’t give a gust of stinking chihuahua flatulence whether the woman standing next to them has fleshier knees than they do. Let my girls be Hermiones, rather than Pansy Parkinsons. Let them never be Stupid Girls." – J.K. Rowling #JKRowling #Feminism

I'm sick of sending messages about getting "skinny" to people. Little girls are the ones that hear this and they end up with eating disorders. Cut the skinny crap. It's about HEALTH. Society is messed up, we need to change that. Advocate for a healthy body and a healthy body image.
I want my daughters to have healthy body images...
Don't let children think like this. The insecurities of society are harsh and tainted. Teach children their beauty is unique and infinite, keeping their self image clean and pure <3

I really like this picture because it makes me think about why gender is such a significant characteristic in the first place. Even on academic forms there is sometimes a space to check off either male or female and I question why they even need to know. I have only once ever seen the options male, female, and other, and even that seems insensitive.

This pin is a good reminder that gender is not always as simple as this. One area I am interested in learning more about is the non-binary idea of gender and how the word itself, "gender" can be used to describe a wide array of things. I am interested to see how the words "male" and "female" have ways of being placed in the gray areas, as opposed to being simply black and white.
Fuck Yeah Androgyny!
“Gender equality” isn’t enough – the very concept of gender is the enemy of liberation

Fight back #feminist my-feminist-rantings why does this girl need to be scary because she wants these things? very afraid of her?
I dont know enough feminists and the truth is if you have a pulse you should be one too.
Here's Why The Riot Grrrl Movement Will Always Be Empowering (my generation is missing a "feminist movement". I can latch onto The Riot, but I don't look like a girl. I am a well educated, well traveled, working mother who votes. I guess I am scary to some. Boo!
Great quote to close talk ... you might think I look like "just a girl", but you should be very, very afraid of me.
It is so sad to see people still believing feminism is a bad thing. When is equality bad!? I just assume they are uneducated or believe they should be second place because they have a vagina. #feminist #equality

A classic from Barbara Kruger. #ad #design #fem2 #body #image #women #feminism #design
Classic poster from collage artist Barbara Kruger "Your body is a battleground"
Barbara Kruger's Your Body is a Battleground (1989) is a political poster in support of a 1973 decision by the Supreme Court of the United States in Roe v. Wade, a ruling that formed the basis for legalized abortion in the United States. The poster was used to promote a march on Washington opposing the Bush administration's attempts to overturn the Roe v. Wade ruling in April of 1989. In this poster, a woman’s face, divided into a photographic positive and its negative, stares directly at the viewer. Superimposed on this image is the text “Your Body is a Battleground,” a political slogan previously used by Vietnam War protesters during the late 1960s.

Knocked up Barbie. She doesn't have a vagina, so, obviously, babies come out of a perfect oval from your stomach. It would be hilarious if she could have a vaginal birth. Either way, this is great, I love it, and every girl should have one. Easy way for parents to have the sex talk....cuz you know schools aren't doing it.
