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

Chinese foot binding - the toes were broken and folded under the foot. This reminds me of an extreme form of what high heels do to women's feet today.
Chinese footbinding - the toes were broken and folded under the foot. Good description in the book *Snowflower and the Secret Fan* (not in ...
Chinese foot binding - the toes were broken and folded under the foot. A very painful process, making it almost impossible to walk, even after healing. Many young girls died from infection. Awful practice.
Chinese foot binding - the toes were broken and folded under the foot. Small bound feet were symbolic of the Lily or Lotus (flowers).
other than I always wondered what bound feet looked like. Chinese foot binding - the toes were broken and folded under the foot.
Chinese foot binding - the toes were broken and folded under the foot. it was usual to bind the feet of the eldest daughter, who was intended to be brought up as a lady. Her large-footed sisters would grow up to be bond-servants or domestic slaves, and, when old enough, the concubines of rich men or the wives of laboring men - able to work in the fields alongside them. The ideal length of a bound foot, called the “Golden Lotus”, being 3 inches long.
Silk or cotton bandages,10' long & 2" wide, were prepared by soaking in the same blood and herb mix. Each of the toes are broken & wrapped in the wet bandages, which would constrict when drying, & pulled tightly down to the heel.There may have been deep cuts made in the sole to facilitate this. Feet binding could lead to infections, gangrene,& was painful for life.Thankfully the ban on foot binding was enacted by the Japanese government in 1915 and the prohibition remains in effect today.
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."
WHAT THE?!?!?! 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.
