Event:
Dig your heels in against violence

Walk a mile in my shoes, walk a mile in my shoes
Yeah, before you abuse, criticize and accuse
Walk a mile in my shoes


These song lyrics couldn't be more apt for this fun but also highly serious event. This is a tottering walk in high heels, for both men and women, in the city on Friday the 9th of May.

[ADVERT]This walk will have men realising a few of the agonies women go through walking in high heels.

But it also symbolic of the far worse experience women suffer in our society. Statistically one woman is killed every week in Australia by a current or former partner.

Violence exists in the workplace, family and community and it's not only physical but often verbal. And we all know someone who just happened to walk into a door if we haven't had that same accidental relationship ourselves.

This is an important walk which highlights this untenable violence.

Last year this walk, which has a $25 entrant fee, raised over $32 000 for White Ribbon Australia, Harcourts Victoria.

There were 250 men and women tottering in towering heels to
march against violence against women.

Let's see what can be raised this year simply by sporting some high heels.

So don't just take a stand but take a walk against violence and raise funds and awareness for the White Ribbon Campaign in Walk a Mile in their Shoes 2014.
