Hell on Heels

Last night, I had the honour of being a panelist for a documentary screening that focused on the implications of servers wearing high heels; called "Hell on Heels."

As a former server, I worked in a restaurant that had a mandatory heel height of 1 inch. For a 6 ft tall server, it did not make sense... along with the fact that I've had severe back issues (scoliosis, stress fractures, disc herniation.) I served in this company for 4 years, and found that there was an emphasis placed on the employee's appearance rather than their professionalism or abilities.

The discussion that followed the screening was passionate, welcoming, and inspiring- it was great to see so many voices speak up against the outdated heel height policy. I shared my experience along with my fellow panelists, I invite all of you to watch the trailer of the documentary, and sign the petition.

Let's make a change for the better!

  1. If you are a student then assignment tasks are also given to you because these are considered as the main tools for judging student’s knowledge all around the world. Students do not understand the real meaning of these types of assignments and only consider them a means of achieving good grades but in reality this is an awfully daunting work. Further, it is also essential to follow the demands of your teachers which make this work more difficult. The worst of all, fast approaching deadlines makes you feeling nuts and in the end all you can get is a low performance certificate from the teachers.
