Walk a mile

Fraternities gather on Centennial Mall before the start of Walk A Mile in Her Shoes. Fraternity members march to stop rape, sexual assault and gender violence. The men put on high heel shoes before walking a mile around campus to experience what it’s like to walk in a woman’s shoes. 

The Hill was filled with hairy legs in high heels Tuesday for the annual Walk a Mile in Her Shoes event. Hosted by the Interfraternity Council, the event was a way to raise money for sexual trauma crisis center Hope Harbor. The event started at Centennial Mall, where speakers such as IFC president Johnny Bush emphasized the importance of sexual assault awareness. After these remarks, the participants made their trek up the hill towards Cherry Hall and made their way back towards Centennial Mall, with a few blister along the way. The event raised $2,500 for Hope Harbor, and around 70 men participated.
