    Researchers at the University of Portsmouth carried out an experiment to further emphasise how femininity is accentuated through wearing high heels, they conducted an experiment where they filmed two short clips of a woman walking on a treadmill once with heels and once without, however the face and torso of the woman was obscured so that the viewer could only see the outline of someone walking. After the two clips were shown to a group of students it was twice as likely for the woman not wearing heels to be mistaken as a man. However, despite heels being a supposed benefit for women in actual fact, in the workplace it is 7.5 times more likely that a woman will suffer from foot, or foot related pain than a man due to their shoes, resulting in over 44 million work days lost due to back or foot pain.

Certain groups of people were not treated fairly and as a result, attempted to find ways to get a step ahead of the rest. An example of this would be when Takaki is discussing the Irish and the African Americans. A quote that caught my…

By all means no. But honestly, I have yet to be part of an organization in which a story is done to perfection (this includes the Carolina Connection radio program, which I helped lead for one…
