We are pleased to welcome men and women walkers at the 2018 Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® event, taking place on Saturday, September 29th, 2018. The walk is still taking place in Victoria Park (downtown, London) - this year we have a live band, family BBQ and fun activities!
ABOUT THE WALK
Each year, an ever-increasing number of men are joining Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® International Men’s March to Stop Rape, Sexual Assault and Gender Violence.
Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® is a fun opportunity for men to educate the community about a very serious subject and to rally the community to take action to prevent sexualized violence – and raise money for women’s shelters and women’s emergency services.
Join the local Walk a Mile In Her Shoes® at Victoria Park in downtown London, on Saturday, September 29th in support of Anova, formerly Women's Community House and Sexual Assault Centre London, to create a future without violence.
One in every four women is abused. That means someone you know, someone you care about, has been or may become a victim of abuse. It may be your mother, your sister, your friend, your coworker or your daughter. Woman abuse does not just affect women. It affects the men who care about them, their families, their children, their friends, their co-workers and the community.
Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® provides several opportunities to get people talking. For preventive education it helps men better understand and appreciate women’s experiences thus changing perspectives, and it demonstrates that men are willing and able to be courageous partners with women in making our world a safer place.
