 Walk a Mile in Her Shoes®

The International Men’s March to Stop Rape, Sexual Assault & Gender Violence

Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® is the international men's march which encourages men to walk one mile in women's high-heeled shoes to protest rape, sexual assault & gender violence. Our Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® event will be held May 10, 2014 at Farm Park in Norristown benefitting Laurel House Shelter of Norristown. 

Laurel House has been providing a safe and secure refuge for victims of abuse and their children for the last 33 years. By focusing on the positive aspect of a community coming together around this topic, the Walk strives to empower individuals to take a stand against gender violence!
