What is Walk A Mile?
This annual event gets men (and women!) involved in the fight against sexual violence and raises awareness about the free, local services Sexual Trauma Services of the Midlands (STSM) provides for survivors of sexual assault and abuse.
There is an old saying: “You can’t really understand another person’s experience until you’ve walked a mile in their shoes.” Walk a Mile in Her Shoes asks participants to literally walk one mile in women’s high-heeled shoes. It’s not easy walking in these shoes, but it’s fun and it gets the community to talk about something that’s really difficult to talk about: gender relations and sexualized violence.
