Walk a Mile In Her Shoes 2014

Welsh Women’s Aid

Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® 2014

There is an old saying: “You can’t really understand another person’s experience until you’ve walked a mile in their shoes.” Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® asks men to literally walk one mile in women’s shoes. It’s not easy walking in these shoes, but it is fun and it gets the community to talk about something that’s really difficult to talk about: gender relations and sexual violence.

On the 6th December Welsh Women’s Aid are asking men from all over Wales to join us for this one mile walk in high heels in recognition of the role you have to play in ending violence against women. It is a fun way of raising awareness and getting people talking!

 

Date: 6th December 2014

Time: meet 1.30pm

Meeting place: Unite the Union, 1 Cathedral Rd, Cardiff CF11 9SD

The walk will end at Porters Bar with speeches from Torchwood star, Gareth David Lloyd

Any bright woman’s shoe is to be worn by participants. Welsh Women’s Aid are happy to provide shoes for you, please advise us of your shoe size on the registration form. People of any gender identity are also welcome to support and take part in the event.
