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

$125,000

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 $125,000.00! We’ll see you on Thursday, September 26th, 2013.
