Women In China Underwent Foot Binding Just To Look Beautiful

How is it like to go through an accident and face a fracture? Well, going through this pain was a symbol of beauty for females, once in China. Yes, it’s true, I am not joking.
The system comprised of a custom of applying tight binding to the feet of young girls to prevent further growth of bones and this practice was popularly known as Foot Binding.
Bound Feet was a reflection of status. It signified women from wealthy families, whose feet did not need to work.
This practice originated among upper-class court dancers in Imperial China.
