Everyone has been talking about it, so what is Walk-a-Mile in Her Shoes?

You guessed it – you literally walk a mile in her shoes – but what is it for? Well, Walk-a-Mile is an international event in which people come together to show their support for the victims of sexualized violence, gender-related assault, and rape. You take a walk in someone else’s shoes and by doing so, you are raising awareness for issues considered too sensitive to discuss in polite company. By being a part of this event, you are helping to break down societal walls.

USFSP Women Empowerment Club

The USFSP Women Empowerment Club is hosting the 1st annual Walk-a-Mile in Her Shoes event this Thursday, March 31st at 4 P.M. on the Harborwalk. Walking in heels is not required, but prizes will only be rewarded to those who wear them. You may register as an individual or a team. Food and t-shirts will be provided to walkers, and prizes will be rewarded to the top three walkers in each race (Individual and Student Organization).
