Why should women be forced to wear heels? 

I personally have been rejected from nightclubs and thousands of women are forced to wear heels to work every single day.

Not only can they be painful and problematic to your health, but they also carry sexist and discriminatory issues with them that we shouldn't have to put up with in 2017.

To some, the nightclub aspect may not seem like a big deal, however what comes with this "flat shoe ban" is also, what clothing you should wear, what makeup and what hair. If you're not "sexy" enough you won't be going in. Going on a night out IS a choice, but it should be a choice for everyone, including women that CAN'T or WON'T wear heels. 

I am fortunate enough to now work for myself, however I have previously been forced to wear heels to work which resulted in me quitting after I couldn't take the excruciating pain any longer. I can't sympathise enough with the women that have to do this, I cannot believe in 2017 this is still a thing, so let change it once and for all!
