School of Chemistry headed gallant feminist Peggy Combs, having the rank of general. Dame-General issued an order in which the trainees are obliged to maintain during dismissal city events. Since this event was an action “Walk a mile in her shoes”, the officers had to wear women’s shoes and hobble in the uncomfortable shoes, expressing such a complex way a protest against the oppression of women.

The incident drew attention because the students were dressed in army uniforms, and a bright red shoes have made some variety in the harsh face of men. By the way, to make such a radical women’s shoes colors used cans of paint. We can not say that the officers were delighted, but orders are orders.

Boating American men in women’s shoes in one of the weekends of April – it’s an American tradition.
