Foot Binding, China

 For almost a thousand years, Chinese people considered small feet to be the sign of beauty and attractiveness among the girls and to ensure that the foot does not grow bigger, young girls were pressurized to get their foot fastened by tight bandages.


 The normal feet got reduced to about only 3 inches of size in this way. In this process, the bones often got broken and the girls subjected to this painful custom experienced sepsis and paralyze. Though this insane culture is now stopped.
