SafeHouse of Shelby County hosts its first Walk a Mile in Her Shoes®, the International Men’s March to stop rape, sexual assault & gender violence. Domestic and sexual violence do not just affect women. Violence against women affects the men who care about them, their families, their friends, their coworkers, and their communities. Sexualized violence is epidemic. Every two minutes someone in America is raped. One in six American women are victims of sexual assault. One in four women will be a victim of domestic violence in her lifetime. That means someone you know, someone you care about, has been or may become the victim of domestic and/or sexual violence. It may be your mother, your sister, your friend, your girlfriend, your wife, your coworker, or your daughter.
Walk a Mile in Her Shoes with SafeHouse to raise awareness of domestic and sexual violence and the need for men to send strong messages to other men and boys that violence against women must be stopped.
