WALK A MILE
Gender based violence is not
just a women's issue
"Gender based violence does not just affect women. It affects the men
who care about them, their families, their friends, their coworkers, and
Have experienced at least one form of gender-based violence.
These are the women you know
Somebody you care about, has been or may become a victim of violence
It could be your Mother, your Sister, your Friend, your Girlfriend, your Wife, your Coworker, or your Daughter
through walk a mile, we don't talk the talk - we walk the walk
Walk a Mile in Her Shoes isn't simply a stunt - it's a statement about men's role in ending violence against women; an issue that is connected to strict gender roles and expectations of men. By wearing heels and acting in solidarity with women, we want to show that we'll do whatever it takes to make this a safer world for everyone.
Our goal this year is to raise
Last year, participants raised $145,000.00 to help end violence against women and girls. Thank you! This year we really need your help to reach our goal of $250,000.00 – which will be the highest amount raised in White Ribbon Campaign’s 20-year history! We’ll see you on Thursday, September 26th, 2013.
