Walk a Mile in Her Shoes


Can men walking in red patent leather pumps or gold lame heels offer any kind of promise for a safer world? You bet they can! Last year, over 60 men marched against sexual violence in our community. This year, we’re expecting over 100! If you are a guy, or if you know a guy, then you have a chance to make a difference on April 18th, when a big group of men from our area will march on the Downtown Mall in shoes typically worn by women – high heels, ballet flats, you name it! It’s an attention-grabbing effort to draw our community’s notice to the current epidemic of sexual assault – 1 in 4 women and 1 in 8 men are sexually assaulted in their lifetimes. This is not okay, and all genders have a huge role to play in decreasing these numbers – as vital community leaders, allies, friends, survivors, and change-makers! So take the first step, and get a team together to walk against sexual assault. Cost: $10-15. Registration information available at http://www.saracville.org/walk10.htm
