Walk a Mile in Her Shoes


The International Men's March to Stop Rape, Sexual Assault, and Gender Violence



Rape, sexual assault and gender violence are often thought of as exclusively women's issues. While being part of the problem men play in a role in sexual assault and are integral components to preventing violence against women.


During Walk a Mile in Her Shoes, male participants will be walking a mile on campus in women's shoes to raise awareness about the role men play in preventing sexual assault. Female volunteers can participate as sideline support. 


Walk a Mile in Her Shoes is a Program through the Ohio University Women’s Center.



Walk a Mile in Her Shoes occurs every year in the fall. Stay tuned for updates about the date and time of the 2013-2014 walk!

 Take Back the Night
