Walk a Mile in Her Shoes 2014

Hawai‘i Pacific University's Student Government Association is hosting its first ever Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® event to highlight Sexual Assault Awareness Month in April on Wednesday, April 16, 2014 at 11:30am. The goal of presenting this event is to create a united gender movement that engages men and allows them to be a part of the solution to end sexualized violence. The Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® event asks men to literally walk one mile in women’s shoes which is not an easy task.  This act generates a unique and powerful public experience that educates individuals and communities about the causes of sexualized violence, connects individuals with community services available for recovery, and empowers everyone to further develop and implement these skills and knowledge interpersonally and politically. Sexualized violence does not just affect women; it affects the men who care about them, their families, their friends, their coworkers, and their communities.
