Men can don heels to march against violence April 9 at MTSU

From Milton Berle to RuPaul, men have found it difficult to stagger around in women’s shoes.

Violence is neither fashionable nor funny, however. That’s why “Walk a Mile in Her Shoes,” the men’s march to stop rape, sexual assault and gender violence, is scheduled for 6 p.m. Wednesday, April 9, at MTSU’s Health, Wellness and Recreation Center.

Men are invited to don high-heeled women’s shoes and attempt to walk on campus to give them an idea of what it is like for a woman to try to run away from an attacker.

Registration will begin at 5:30 p.m. Free food and karaoke will be available immediately following the walk.

This event is co-sponsored by the Interfraternity Council, Fraternity and Sorority Life, the June Anderson Center for Women and Nontraditional Students and the Center for Student Involvement and Leadership.

For more information, contact Barbara Scales, director of the June Anderson Center, at 615-898-2193 or barbara.scales@mtsu.edu, or visit www.mtsu.edu/jac/women/programs.php.
