Chinese Foot Binding

This is the practice that no longer exists in which the foot of young Chinese girls were bound tightly from a young age so that the foot no longer grew in size as the smaller foot was considered more erotic and valued in Chinese culture. The practice no longer exists, but did result in significant disability and pain.
