Men wearing heels?!
That may not be something you see everyday, but the award winning Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® international men’s march sees hundreds of men walking in high heels to stop rape, sexual assault & gender violence.
The organization calls it a “playful opportunity for men to raise awareness in their community about the serious causes, effects and remediations to men’s sexualized violence against women.” The Walk A Mile In Her Shoes events open up a conversation that needs to happen in a fun way, asking men who participate to literally walk one mile in high heels to get people talking about what it’s like to be a woman in today’s society.
If there’s one thing that women know about heels, it’s that they can hurt! We think it’s great that men all across the country that are participating in this event will leave understanding the struggles and pain women go through everyday, even just by wearing a pair of heels with their outfit! All participants at these events, male or female, could definitely use a spray or two of Heel No Pain Style to help them walk that high-heeledmile!
Talking about gender violence and sexual assault is so important, and these events are all about preventative education, changing perspectives, and helping men better understand and appreciate what it’s like to be a woman in today’s world!
Check out the Walk A Mile In Her Shoes website for more information on the event, and make sure to purchase a bottle of Heel No Pain Style to help spray the pain away!
