All About Walk A Mile In Her Shoes

YWCA Rock County Walk a Mile in Her Shoes began in 2006 as an advocacy event to raise awareness of sexual violence issues in our community. While fun, it was also a powerful way to get men and boys involved in being part of the solution. A simple concept: ask men to wear high-heeled shoes and walk a mile in them. That’s all it took and Walk a Mile in Her Shoes was born. The first year we had a handful of walkers. Last year we had nearly 200 who turned an advocacy event into one that also raised revenue for the YW and victims of sexual violence. This year? Help us reach our goal of 300 participants and just watch what we can do together – one step at a time!

Men, please step up and walk! Women, convince the men and boys in your lives to join us, then come out to walk beside them or cheer them on!

Did You Know Today Is Women's Equality Day??
Women’s Equality Day commemorates 26th August 1920 when votes to women officially became part of the US constitution. This day marks a turning point in the history of the struggle for equal treatment of women and women’s rights.

Today, women’s equality has grown to mean much more than just sharing the right to the vote. Organisations such as Equality Now and Womankind Worldwide continue to work to provide women across the globe with equal opportunities to education and employment, pushing against suppression and violence towards women and against the discrimination and stereotyping which still occur in every society.
