Originally created as a walk to bring men together to end sexualized violence, Victoria’s Walk a Mile in Her Shoes asks men alongside their communities to walk one mile wearing shoes of their own (or fancy shoes with heels if they choose) to raise funds and awareness for the Victoria Women’s Sexual Assault Centre. It’s fun and gets everyone talking about something that’s really difficult to talk about: sexualized violence.
Change happens when people work together. The action of walking in solidarity is a clear message that we, as a community, will not tolerate sexualized violence and are ready and willing to work for change. It’s time to speak out and break the silence that surrounds sexualized violence.
