YWCA Hanover’s Walk A Mile In Her Shoes
Friday, August 13th, 2021
The community support for what we do is inspiring, and for that, we thank each and every one of the walkers, donors, sponsors, and supporters.
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 2021
“You can’t really understand another person’s experience until you’ve walked a mile in their shoes.”
Walk a Mile in HER Shoes 2021 – 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.
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!

Your Participation is Important to Us
The fundraising efforts of all Walk A Mile in HER Shoes event participants allows SafeHome to deliver programs that 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! Want to donate?
