Just as the practice of footbinding was followed for centuries in China, the practice of wearing high heels has been promoted in the western world as a symbol of feminine beauty and desirability. But what happens to the body when they are worn? Captured: From Footbinding to Stilettos looks at the two practices and explores the associated beauty ideals and health risks. The film provides suggestions and tools to sidestep some of the potential harms of wearing high heels. A special features section includes print support materials for the classroom in this resource that is suitable for use in high school through graduate school.
