Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® is The International Men's March to Stop Rape,
Sexual Assault and Gender Violence. Their mission is to create a
powerful public experience that educates individuals and communities
about the causes of sexualized violence, provides them with prevention
remediation strategies, and empowers them to further develop and
implement their knowledge and skills interpersonally and politically.
Inspired by the old saying, "You can't really understand another person's experience until you've walked a mile in their shoes," men literally walk 1 mile in women's high-heeled shoes at community events across the country to help raise awareness about sexual and domestic violence.
Men who are unable to wear high-heeled shoes wear specially decorated shoes instead. Shoes are typically available for those who do not have their own.
