About Walk a Mile in Her Shoes
The International Men’s March to Stop Rape, Sexual Assault & Gender Violence, Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® is a fun opportunity for men to educate the community about a very serious subject and to rally the community to take action to prevent sexualized violence. Men are asked to walk in women’s shoes for one mile to both bring attention to this serious crime as well as show their public support for the need to end sexual violence. We are asking males in our community to publicly acknowledge their commitment to preventing sexual violence in our community.
There is an old saying: “You can’t really understand another person’s experience until you’ve walked a mile in her shoes.” We invite you to spend a mile of your time acknowledging and showing our community, that you understand the impact of the ugly crime of Sexual Violence on women and children’s lives – your sister, your mother, your child, your partner, your friend, your neighbour, your co-worker, you as a child – one man step at a time.
