Article about some South Korean cities making designated parking spaces for women wearing high heels.

I get where they're coming from -- really, I do. Walking in heels is a pain, literally and otherwise. But seriously? Walking in heels DOES sort of handicap you. You can't run or move nearly as freely as you could in tennis shoes, or even in men's dress shoes. But if Seoul wants to become more "woman friendly," which is the reason behind the push for the spaces and some other changes to the city, perhaps it should consider, oh, I don't know, subsidized child care. Or funding for women in the sciences. Or researching how to implement something like Title IX in Korean schools.
