Walk a Mile in Her Shoes
The Men's March to Stop Rape, Sexual Assault, and Gender Violence
From the site:
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® asks men to literally walk one mile in women's high-heeled shoes. It's not easy walking in these shoes, but it's fun and it gets the community to talk about something that's really difficult to talk about: gender relations and sexual violence.
Hmmm. Quite a concept. Not as though wearing women's shoes is a change for some men, but it's nice to see men doing something for a "women's issue". (Finally, people are starting to realize that women's issues are actually people's issues).
Check out the calendar and see if there's a scheduled walk in your neighborhood for 2007. (Or get info on how to organize your own).
A special thank you to A., one of our lovely evil slutty readers for giving us this link.
