Walk a Mile in Her Shoes
July 24 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pmFree
There is an old saying: “You can’t understand another person’s experience until you’ve walked a mile in their shoes.” To get people listening, learning, and talking, Walk a Mile in Her Shoes education events organize around men literally walking one mile in women’s high-heeled shoes.
It’s not easy walking in these shoes, but it’s an experience around which a lot of education, self-reflection, and change happens. It’s impressive to see such a visually stunning public statement of listening, learning, allyship, and commitment. It’s an engaging event that gets the community talking about sex and gender biases, gender identity, gender relations, and men’s sexualized violence.
This will be STAR’s 9th Annual Walk a Mile in Her Shoes Event. Each year we raise funds to provide services for people in our community, as well as prevention and education in schools, workplaces, and community groups.
This year, the Walk is going to be held outdoors at the Cuddy Family Midtown Park, and the one-mile course will be three laps on the paved path around the pond at the park. Together, alongside our participants and supporters, can make the 2021 Walk the most successful one yet!
