What is Walk a Mile in Her Shoes®?

Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® is an international men’s march where men and boys lead the way on the road to end sexual and domestic violence. Created by men, the Walk gives participants the opportunity to get their communities talking about a difficult subject while increasing awareness of the problem, offering opportunities for healing and demonstrating men’s willingness to walk with women and children as allies, advocates and survivors.

History of Walk a Mile in Her Shoes®

Frank Baird created Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® in 2001. What started out as a small group of men daring to totter around a park has grown to become a world-wide movement with tens of thousands of men raising millions of dollars for local rape crisis centers, domestic violence shelters and other sexualized violence education, prevention and remediation programs.

“Violence against women does not just affect women,” says Baird. “Men are hurt and angered when women they care about are raped. Men are hurt and angered when they try to develop relationships with women in an atmosphere of fear and mistrust and blame. And the same violence that targets women also targets men because rape isn’t about sex, it’s about power, control and violence.”
