Walk a Mile in HER Shoes is a symbolic gesture of men marching in female footwear to raise awareness and money for the issue of violence against women. The Walk gives men the opportunity to publicly take a stand, and it shows that men are willing to stand together with women in making the world a safer place for all women and children.
