Okay, so we can’t deny that here in America we have been known to do some pretty crazy things for the sake of beauty or fashion. Some have gone to extreme measures—toe removal for narrow, pointed shoes; bone shaving to ‘correct’ prominent foreheads; even the outrageous feed tube diet to achieve drastic weight loss. Or perhaps, the most terrifying of all, the infamous 'Cat Woman' who underwent dozens of surgeries to look like a lion to get her estranged husband back. Really ladies, we have to draw the line somewhere. As it turns out, we’re not alone in this wide world. Women around the globe share our same desire for beauty—although we differ on definition—and are willing to suffer painful, body altering practices to achieve it.
