Take the challenge and join us for the International Men's March Against Sexual Violence. A UB tradition, this is the 8th Annual Walk A Mile in Her Shoes event to benefit Crisis Services. 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 high-heeled shoes. It's not easy walking in these shoes, but it's fun and it gets the community to talk about something that's really difficult to talk about: gender relations and sexual violence.
