Women’s Center Sends Out Challenge: Walk A Mile In Her Shoes

The UMKC Women’s Center and Violence Prevention and Response Project are again challenging men at UMKC and in the Kansas City community to help stop violence against women by walking a mile in her shoes.  Literally.

UMKC’s sixth annual Walk a Mile in Her Shoes: An International Men’s March to Stop Rape, Sexual Assault, and Gender Violence event is scheduled for Thursday, September 20, 5:30 p.m., in the Quad.   The march begins at 6:00 p.m., and will be followed by a meal and awards ceremony.  In case of rain, the event will take place Thursday, September 27.

Registration includes a t-shirt and meal — $15 for students with their own heels; $20 for students renting heels; $30 for non-students with their own heels; and $50 for non-students renting heels.   Non-participants may purchase a meal ticket for $7.   Please note:  Registration fees will increase by $5 at on-site registration.

Participants can register and learn more about the event here.  Proceeds benefit the UMKC Violence Prevention and Response Project.
