About the Walk
Walk a Mile in Her Shoes ® was formed in 2001 as a small group of men tottering around in heels to raise awareness about sexual violence. Today, the event has tens of thousands of participants internationally, raising millions of dollars for rape crisis centers, domestic violence shelters, and other sexualized violence education and prevention programs.
Opening communication about sexual violence is critical in our community. Unfortunately, it is difficult to get people talking about this challenging, personal and often unfamiliar topic. Walk a Mile in Her Shoes ® provides us the opportunity to get talking by improving gender relations and demonstrating that men are courageous and valuable partners in helping to make our world a safer place. All proceeds from the event will benefit Safe Alliance.
