IMPORTANT TO SPEAK OUT

THROUGH WALK A MILE, WE DON’T TALK THE TALK
WE WALK THE WALK 

Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® isn’t simply a stunt – it’s a statement about men’s role in ending violence against women; an issue that is connected to strict gender roles and expectations of men. By wearing heels and acting in solidarity with women, we want to show that we’ll do whatever it takes to make this a safer world for everyone.
