Walking another mile in her shoes

#Toronto men were busy squishing their hairy feet into ladies footwear in the 2013 rally Walk a Mile in Her Shoes, and I bet that after the walk their dogs were barking. The key to a great shoe is a bright, shiny high heal, paired with colourful socks. The international march to stop rape, sexual assault and gender violence was hosted by Steve Anthony of CP24 and Toronto's is one of the largest in the world.
"Walk A Mile In Her Shoes® Events consistently receive enthusiastic participation and news coverage. They are an excellent opportunity to rally support in your community to raise awareness about the causes, effects and remedies for sexual assault and domestic violence."

The money raised in the walk fund White Ribbon which is the world's largest male movement to end violence against females, with education of men and boys being the focus to reduce the violence. You can wear a white ribbon to support the cause of gender equity and healthy relationships.
