Women Turned Away For Not Wearing High Heels At Cannes Film Festival

Published on 19 May, 2015 at 6:45 pm By

In a very sexist move, women were turned away from a movie screening at Cannes Film Festival because they were not were wearing high heels, reports Screen Daily.

On Sunday night, a handful of women in their 50s were turned away from the movie screening of  ‘Carol’ (a feminist film) after being told the height of their smart footwear didn’t pass muster. Some older guests with medical conditions were denied access for wearing rhinestone flats.

An official for the festival declined to comment on the matter, but did confirm that it is obligatory for all women to wear high-heels to red-carpet screenings.

One Cannes regular said:



“I’ve heard this happening several times now, even to older women who can’t wear heels for medical reasons. It’s bulls***. Someone I know was turned away for wearing nice flats, nothing you would wear to the beach. They were in their 50s. They told her she could go and buy appropriate shoes and come back.”
