Georgia Southern University will hold its second Walk a Mile in Her Shoes®, in which men walk in women’s high-heeled shoes to increase awareness about sexual violence, Thursday, April 10 at the Russell Union Rotunda.
Alli Anderson, licensed psychologist with the University’s Counseling and Career Development Center, said “Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® is a light-hearted, educational event that aims to raise awareness and encourage communication about gender relations and sexual violence. All of the proceeds will be donated to the Statesboro Regional Sexual Assault Center which helps survivors of sexual assault in Bulloch, Jenkins and Screven counties.”
The goals of the walk are to get people to talk about the sexual violence happening in the Statesboro area, help the victims and figure out how to prevent these attacks. Organizers say it is important for men to join the cause.
