Walk A Mile in Her Shoes Oshkosh 2017

May 3, 2017 @ 4:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

The International Men’s March to Stop Rape, Sexual Assault and Gender Violence.

No matter whose shoes you’re wearing, sexual violence affects everyone. Whether someone is wearing heels and a skirt or sweatpants and crocs, there’s no excuse for gender-based violence. To say that “immodest attire” invites rape is not only skirting the real issue, but also it’s insulting to men-as if seeing a bit of skin suddenly robs men of their better judgment. So, grab a pair of heels and come walk a mile with us to show that attire is not consent or an excuse!

Men are encouraged to wear high heels for this mile-long walk. Women are encouraged to come as they are (feel free to wear heels, tennis shoes, flats, slippers, or whatever else you’d like). Participation is free, but we encourage donations to support Christine Ann Domestic Abuse Services and Reach Counseling. Prizes will be awarded for most donations raised, highest heels, and more!
