The “Walk a Mile in her Shoes” outreach allows men to participate in ending sexual violence against women. Here they can make a stand, get others involved, raise awareness, be supportive and raise funds for women who have suffered from the destructive acts of sexual abuse.
For those who wish to get involved there are a few ways. Organizing a walk on a local level is one way to help. These walks playfully allow men to “Walk a mile in her shoes” literally, as men take donations and then wearing women’s shoes walk a mile for the cause.

Using the store for walking gear is a great way to financially support the effort, and makes a great appearance for the press during the walk. Men can make a stand, and they can make a difference in outreach, awareness and in fundraising. “Walk a Mile in Her Shoes” is designed to give men power to help women feel their support. This wonderful initiative allows men to make a public stand against the sexual violence that permeates the world of girls and women across the globe.
