The New Walk a Mile Blog

Oh, look! Here's the official Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® Blog.

Why a Walk a Mile Blog?

To keep the conversation going. Now that we've got your attention with thousands of men literally walking one mile in high heeled shoes to show their investment in ending sexualized violence, we want to keep you talking. And we're hoping your talking leads to actions, actions that can make the world not just a safer place, but a more enjoyable place for everyone.

Ending sexualized violence cannot be a one–time demonstration. It cannot be a one-time statement. Men must make decisions daily about how they want to show up in the world, about how they want to be in relationship with women and children and other men. Men must make decisions daily about the relationship they will take to sexualized violence.

Will they turn a blind eye? Will they blame the victim? Will they minimize the impact of sexualized violence?

Will they take a stand with the ways they think and speak and act?

Will they take this stand for themselves individually? Will they take this stand on behalf of their family or friends? Will they take this stand on behalf of their community?

How will they and others know they've taken a stand?

Let's find out.
