My High-Heeled Shoes
Claudia Cousineau (+Video)
In Chile, it was common practice for women to wear high-heeled shoes. They were part of the expected professional attire for women. For me, they were a way to appear powerful and independent in the business world even though I did not feel this way inside. Tired of trying to meet social expectations wearing shoes that did not fit me, I ventured into the search for a new life, a place where I could create my own rules and choose my own type of shoes.
