The International Men’s March To Stop Rape, Sexual Assault & Gender Violence
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 men’s sexual violence against women. By wearing women’s shoes, participating gentlemen symbolically put themselves in the place of women for the purpose of raising awareness about the dire effects of sexual and domestic assault in our community. Funds raised will help to provide services for survivors of domestic violence.
Walk the Walk 2020
“You can’t really understand another person’s experience until you’ve walked a mile in their shoes.”
Walk a Mile in HER Shoes 2020 – YWCA Hanover Safe Home VIRTUAL EDITION is a pledge based, fundraising and public awareness campaign. The event asks men to literally walk one mile in women’s high-heeled shoes while the community supports their efforts through pledging funds and joining the walk.
In response to the impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic, YWCA Hanover Safe Home has chosen to adapt to the situation and will continue with a VIRTUAL event. This means you will be able to complete your mile, in heels, anywhere! On August 14, 2020, get your walk on and do not forget to challenge your friends, family and coworkers to take a walk too!
YWCA Hanover Safe Home will be streaming live during the event with special guests and surprises! We encourage you to record, photograph, and stream your walk to share online also!
Walk A Mile in HER Shoes 2020 will also be introducing fun contests, competitions, and great prizes to really get the Hanover Community involved. Make sure to follow us on Facebook, Instagram and YouTube to get the most update information as soon as it is available.

Your Participation is Important to Us
The fundraising efforts of all Walk A Mile in HER Shoes event participants allows SafeHome to deliver programs which provide many services to women, men and children who have chosen to pursue a healthier, safer, and more secure life. Our goal is to ensure anyone living in or leaving an abusive relationship has access to someone who can respond to their crisis and support them. All of our services are confidential, free and available to anyone who’s experiencing domestic violence, homelessness, poverty and many other barriers faced in challenging times.
Virtually, anyone can make a difference!
