Women from the Ankle Down

By Rachelle Bergstein
237 pages

I picked up this book on a lark. Something about the.cover just appealed to me. But then I didn't read it for a couple weeks.

I began it yesterday, and enjoyed it immensely. It is conversational and entertaining, factual without being heavy.
Each chapter focuses on a particular movement and change in the world of footwear, and explores it in reference to the corresponding social movements, mostly in the States.

It discusses Monroe, Garland, Wonder Woman, and many more. The author has a friendly easy style and a good sense of humour.
