Walk a mile in her shoes is a playful opportunity for men to raise awareness in their community about the seriousness of violence towards women.
It's critical to open communication about violence towards women. Unfortunately, it's difficult to get people talking. Peopl unfamiliar with violence against women don't want to know it exists. It's ugly. Victims themselves want to forget about it. How do you get people talking now, so they can prevent it from happening? And if it's already happened, how do you help them recover. "A lot of people aren't comfortable talking about these kinds of things, so when you add humour... it makes them take down their guard a little bit and open be open to hearing the message," said former Executive Director, Colleen Arnold.
