Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® has become UCA’s signature event in observance of Sexual Assault Awareness Month. The university’s Interfraternity Council (IFC), the UCA Police Department, Office of Student Life, Division of Athletics and two community partners, Conway Women’s Shelter and HAVEN House, are organizing the walk.
Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® is the international men’s march to stop rape, sexual assault and gender violence.
Locally, participants will wear women’s high heel shoes to raise awareness about sexual violence, although individuals are not required to wear high heels to participate.
Male students, faculty, staff and female supporters will participate in a Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® event at 1:40 p.m., Thursday, April 2. The walk starts at the Crafton Alumni Pavilion/Football Practice Field on the UCA campus.
