Japanese office ladies fight back against mandatory heels at work




Yumi Ishikawa, Japanese actress and writer, started the #Kutoo movement, a wordplay for 靴 (kutsu, shoe in Japanese), 苦痛 (kutsuu, pain or agony in Japanese) and #metoo, that seeks to fight against heels in Japanese offices as obligatory dress code for women. This ties to the ideas in Japanese society of what a woman should dress.

The Internet movement gained enough signs traction on social media, that they could submit a bill proposal to the Labor Ministry, but was ultimately turned down by Japanese officers

Does your office has a strict dress code?
