Men walk a mile in her shoes to fight against gender based violence
“You can’t really understand another person’s experience until you’ve walked a mile in their shoes.”
That’s why the Toronto based initiative asks men to put on a pair of high heels and join the White Ribbon Campaign to Walk A Mile in Her Shoes®, to help end violence against women and girls, one man-sized step at a time. http://walkamiletoronto.ca
By wearing heels and acting in solidarity with women, they want to show that men will do whatever it takes to make this a safer world for everyone.
I think this is a symbolic and powerful way of showing the importance of empathy towards another gender. This kind of walk is also a good way to gain attention, media coverage and can work well to build awarness around the issue.
