In China, there is a Village where women have small feet following the small feet tradition. They are really small even if your Mobile phone is bigger than theirs. Even their kids have bigger feet than their feet. There is no black magic being this, there is a tradition called small feet tradition behind all of this. In ancient china, there is an old saying and there was a history teller if you wanted to become beautiful you had to get small feet. It started in the 10th century.
if you wanted to become A Golden Lotus you have to remain your feet 3 inches small and that was a status symbol. That was also in a favor of the emperor they love glided lotus flowers with bound feet.”
In this village 10 women faced the stubborn tradition for years, 9 out of them had died and only one has left there named Fu Ki Pang who live there with her grandson. She is 95 years old but her feet look like they belonged 5 years. According to her, she wrapped her feet for 60 years, it started when I was 10 – 12 years old. It doesn’t make sense why they did that but then 40 to 50% of women in china were forced to wrap their feet for the rest of their life.
Luckily in 1912, Sun Yat-sen banned foot binding but some people still bound their feet secretly, mostly in poor villages. But after the People’s Republic of China in 1949, foot binding was completely banned. Today’s women don’t bind their feet. Most women with small feet had died and the last small shoe factory closed in 1999.
This tradition may have died but many traditions are continued to this day. Women still change their bodies to look beautiful, charming, and attractive. In China, they make feet small. British Women make their waists small. In America, they make their breasts big, and more painful traditions are like this. We have to stop these stubborn forcemeat treatments for looking beautiful.
