Walk a Mile in Her Shoes
Get Ready to Walk! And Shed Light on
Violence Against Women
The YLS has teamed up with Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® to
organize a unique walk for men through Chicago's Loop. Men are invited
to literally walk one mile through Chicago's Loop in women's high-heeled
shoes (women are invited to participate and support the male walkers).
The event aims to raise awareness about the cause and effects of
sexualized violence and will be a fun way to get people talking about a
very difficult subject.
