A woman with bound feet sits on a chair at her home in Luliang county
Chang Guanzhen, a 96-year-old woman with bound feet, sits on a chair at her home in Luliang county, Yunnan province, March 6, 2012. Footbinding is a folk custom of binding the feet of young girls to prevent further growth, as it was believed that a woman walking with tiny and narrow feet was more feminine. The custom stopped in the early 20th century due to the change of social conditions and anti-footbinding campaigns. Picture taken March 6, 2012. REUTERS/Wong Campion (CHINA - Tags: SOCIETY)

A shoemaker finishes a shoe for bound feet at Wah Aik Shoemaker shop in Malaysia's tourist town of Malacca, 200 km (124 miles) southeast of Kuala Lumpur May 22, 2010. Wah Aik Shoemaker is run by the Yeo brothers, who are the third generation of shoemakers in the family business that started in 1918 and who say that foot-binding was not practised by the substantial locally born Chinese population that started settling here in the 15th century.
