Walk a Mile in Her Shoes

our 2015 calendar

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® events ask men to literally walk one mile in women's high-heeled shoes. It's not easy but it's a playful opportunity to rally support in our community and raise awareness about the causes, effects and remedies for sexual assault and domestic violence.

"I'm Walking!"

"I'm walking for my

daughter to help create

awareness that the

world she's growing

up in is not nearly as

comfortable as the world my boys are growing up in. But that can change with greater empathy and respect, and we can all get there someday, one sole at a time."

Sam PierstorffModesto Poet Laureate

“I’m walking for my mom, who tolerated an abusive relationship with my father until she took action and divorced him when I was a child. I want women to know they have choices and being an independent single mother is what made my mom the strong person she is today.”
