The East Texas Crisis Center will be hosting the 9th Annual Walk a Mile in Her Shoes Event Saturday, May 29, 2021 during Fiddlers Festival. Come support the men that are walking to raise awareness and jam to the tunes provided by none other than Two Danes Production! This is the International Men’s March to Stop Rape, Sexual Assault and Violence against Women. A Walk a Mile in Her Shoes Event is a playful opportunity for men in our community to raise awareness about the serious causes, effects and remediation’s to sexualize violence.
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 ask men to literally walk one mile in women’s high heeled shoes. It’s not easy walking in these shoes, but its fun and it gets the community to talk about something that is really difficult to talk about: gender relations and sexual violence. It demonstrates that men are willing and able to be courageous partners with women in making the world a safer place.
