    She was binding her feet since she was very young. In China it was a popular thing that women did at one time to have as small feet as they could.

    Foot binding (simplified Chinese: 缠足; traditional Chinese: 纏足; pinyin: chánzú, literally "bound feet") was a custom practiced on young girls and women for approximately one thousand years in China, beginning in the 10th century and ending in the early 20th century.

    According to a study conducted by the University of California at San Francisco, "As the practice waned, some girls' feet were released after initial binding, leaving less severe deformities." Some effects of foot binding are permanent. In the 1990s and early 2000s, some elderly Chinese women still suffered from disabilities related to bound feet.[1]

    The custom is commonly cited by sociologists and anthropologists as examples of how an extreme deformity by contemporary standards can be viewed as a source of "beauty and pleasure", and how immense human suffering can be inflicted upon girls in the pursuit of female beauty.
