From Manly to Sexy: The History of the High Heel » Sociological Images

From Manly to Sexy: The History of the High Heel » Sociological Images | Sex History | Scoop.it

Why do women wear high heels?  Because men did.

 

Men were the first sex to don the shoe. They were adopted by the European aristocracy of the 1600s as a signal of status.  The logic was: only someone who didn’t have to work could possibly go around in such impractical footwear.  (Interestingly, this was the same logic that encouraged footbinding in China.)

If you've got a foot fetish, this is sex history.

When it comes to movies, we complain about the diminished roles for maturing women; we complain about the way women are portrayed in films; we complain about the history of films, most notably The Hollywood Code which seemed to destroy & limit our potential as women in film — on both sides of the camera. But long before all that, in the very beginning, it was even worse. Every so often, we women complain about women in the media.

What kind of life does she have that only her arms are tanned? Sorry, I just wonder about these things. If I were into girls I'd probably be looking at her boobs instead.

"In addition to being the most important female medical practitioners, midwives were central to the maintenance of law and order, as they investigated cases, questioned suspects, and examined condemned women to ensure that no pregnant women were executed."

this one is a little confusing however it talks about how midwives are not strictly midwives they do other things as well. such as how they can become in any case involving women.
