Women in Japan are fed up with high heels. Actress Yumi Ishikawa started a movement to end this. Her movement means "shoe pain". She tweeted that companies in Japan should not tell women to wear high heels. She also started an online petition. It asks Japan's government to stop companies asking women to wear high heels.

Ishikawa's tweet spread across Asia. She said many women feel like she does, so she started her movement. Many women complain about sore feet, back pain and other issues. A visually impaired woman said it is difficult for her to keep her balance in high heels. Many women who work in Tokyo wear high heels once a week.
