Apparently some women were turned away for wearing flat shoes instead of high heels at the film festival Cannes. If true this is pretty bad considering that this 'rule' is only directed at women. Especially when we appear to be moving forward in other aspects of women in film such as the festival opening with a female directed film for the first time in 28 years. I wonder if there were alternative motives behind the women being turned away or if any men have been turned away for wearing trainers?
