Background: One billion women in China have had to do foot binding for nearly 1000 years. It was an attempt to stop the growth of the feet. The reason for women binding their feet went deeper than fashion and reflected the role of women in Chinese society. It was necessary then in China for a woman to have bound feet in order to achieve a good life.
