An interesting study that shows the profound difference wearing high heels made to men’s preparedness to cooperate with a woman’s request; although also to be approached at a bar when alone (astonishingly soon but the study was conducted in France..) To quote a little..

“The study found if a woman drops a glove on the street while wearing heels, she’s almost 50 percent more likely to have a man pick it up for her than if she’s wearing flats. Another finding: A woman wearing heels is twice as likely to persuade men to stop and answer survey questions on the street. And a high-heeled woman in a bar waits half the time to get picked up by a man, compared to when her heel is nearer to the ground.”
