Come Walk a Mile in Her Shoes on May 1 at Monmouth University
WEST LONG BRANCH, NJ (April 25, 2014) – Monmouth University will host Walk a Mile in Her Shoes event on Thursday, May 1 at 4 p.m.
Over 100 students, employees, and community members are expected to participate in the event, which begins on the front steps of Wilson Hall. Participants will walk one mile within the campus.
Walk a Mile in Her Shoes is the International Men’s March to Stop Rape, Sexual Assault, and Gender Violence. The walk is meant to provide a framework to bring awareness for all to stop rape, sexual assault, and gender violence. The walk is open to all, but there is an emphasis on targeting men. Men are encouraged to literally walk one mile in women’s high-heeled shoes to protest sexualized violence, and educate their communities.
