Why are women's shoe sizes bigger than mens?

This question has intrigued scientists and thinkers since the birth of that shoe size discrepancy. The whole thing started in 1937 when John and Sarah Banks, a couple from California went into a shoe store to buy shoes. John's feet were obviously bigger than Sarah's but they both had well proportionate body types. When they bought the shoes, Sarah, who actually was a very active feminist, noticed that the shoe size of her husband was bigger than her's and she felt it was unfair since both of them had normal feet sizes.
Sarah eventually started protests and demanded a same shoe size for feet of same proportion. It worked, and that is why woman's shoe sizes are different than man's.
