Walk a Mile in Her Shoes
Saturday-May 27, 2017.
The East Texas Crisis Center in Henderson County will host its 5th annual Walk a Mile in Her Shoes, the international Men's March to Stop Rape, Sexual Assault and Violence against Women. A Walk a Mile in Her Shoes event is a playful opportunity for men in our community to raise awareness about the serious causes, effects and remediation's to sexualized violence.
Walk a Mile in Her Shoes ask men to literally walk one mile in women's high heeled shoes. It's not easy walking in these shoes, but its fun and it gets the community to talk about something that is really difficult to talk about: gender relations and sexual violence. It demonstrates that men are willing and able to be courageous partners with women in making the world a safer place.
All proceeds of this event will benefit victim services provided by the East Texas Crisis Center in Henderson County.
