"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." (http://www.myseveralworlds.com) >>  I could not even fathom...This is not a travel 'fun' find but it's still something important to know about.

Suffering for Beauty - Photos of Chinese Footbinding

Chinese foot binding - the toes were broken and folded under the foot. Chinese men thought smaller feet were "sexy". Chinese mothers would bind their daughters feet at a young age so that it would be easier for them to find a husband when they got older.
