Women’s Liberation from…Stilettos?

October 8, 2009 at 6:57 pm Leave a comment

UK news website The Independent reports a new movement taking place overseas. A movement to free working women from the treacherous snarls of…high heeled shoes?

Don’t get them wrong. Although they believe that high heels are “sexist” and “good for glamming up but not good for the workplace”, campaign leaders from the Society of Chiropodists and Podiatrists (SCP) are not looking to ban high heels from your place of business–only for women to be afforded the choice to wear more orthopedically sound shoes.

While it may seem ridiculous at first, consider women such as flight attendants and retail saleswomen who, despite the active nature of their jobs, are required to wear high heels as a part of a uniform or dress code.

Ah, yes. The proverbial “gray area”. I think we’ve found it.

Ready to sink your teeth a little deeper into this burgeoning debate? Read the full article HERE.
