‘Walk a Mile in Her Shoes’ event takes place tomorrow


On Thursday, April 23, the Marshall University ROTC Thundering Herd Battalion will host “Walk a Mile in Her Shoes®: March to Stop Rape, Sexual Assault and Gender Violence” in conjunction with the MU Police Department, the MU Women’s Center and CONTACT Rape Crisis Center.

Inspired by the saying that you can’t understand someone else’s experience until you’ve walked a mile in their shoes, organizers of this event invite university and community members to raise their voices for active change on this front.

In the past, men and women of Huntington and Marshall of all ages and backgrounds have participated – including athletes, professors, policemen, administrators, those in business and students. This year’s walk will take place at noon, with registration opening at 11 a.m. by the Memorial Fountain. Heels will be provided at registration.
