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 June 13, 2015 at Core Creek Park in Langhorne, PA benefitting A Woman’s Place of Bucks County.
A Woman’s Place has been providing a safe and secure refuge for victims of abuse and their children for the last 38 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!
