Haven Walk a Mile
Haven Women's Center of Stanislaus County -
Walk a Mile in Her Shoes
Saturday, April 25, 2015
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.

Men walk a mile in her shoes to end domestic violence and sexual assault in Stanislaus.

"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 Pierstorff, Modesto 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.”
- Curt Zimmerman,
