Suffering for beauty: footbinding

After having analysed old fashion which was particularly unconfortable and even dangerous, I would like students to search the web and answer these questions to share them with the rest of the class:

1- What was footbinding? Where was it practised?
2- When did it begin?
3- Why were small feet so well considered among women in China?
4- What was the perfect size for women´s feet?
5- How was footbinding practised?
6- When was footbinding practised? Why?
7- What was the ideal lenght for feet?
8 - How were the different sizes of feet called?
9- When did footbinding end? Why?
10 - What happened to women who had already had their feet wrapped?
