He had an opportunity of bringing the world's largest chicken restaurant company into the world's largest populated country.

Footbinding In Traditional China - 1,847 words
In the beginning of Margaret Mitchell's Gone with the Wind, the heroine, Scarlet O'Hara grips a bedpost while her maid squeezes her torso into a corset, so that her waist will be 17 inches. During the late Nineteenth century, in the United States, it was the fashion for women to have tiny waists. Unfortunately, this fashion came at the cost of broken ribs and damaged internal organs.

Throughout history, fashion and style has come at great costs to many women. However, there are few modes of attaining the prescribed image of beauty at any particular ti ...

Chinese Footbinding - 1,782 words
The ancient Chinese custom of footbinding caused severe life-long suffering for the Chinese women involved.
