Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® raises awareness in communities about the serious causes and effects of sexual violence.
Men walk in women's high-heeled shoes to actively confront gender stereotypes and expectations in a playful and open manner to reveal the underlying causes of men's sexualized violence.
For the last 14 years, Prairie Center Against Sexual Assault has hosted a Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® event to raise awareness around the issue of sexual assault.
This year, our Walk a Mile in Her Shoes event faces great challenges.
The COVID-19 pandemic makes it hard to get together as a large group to raise awareness, but that’s not keeping us from getting the word out about the impact of sexual violence in our communities.
So this year, our 14th annual Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® event will go VIRTUAL!
We hope that by getting people walking THROUGHOUT our local communities (and beyond) we can INCREASE awareness of sexual violence in 2021.
