Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® asks men to walk a mile in women’s high-heeled shoes. Walking in women’s shoes helps men better understand and appreciate women’s experiences, thus changing perspectives, helping improve gender relationships and decreasing the potential for violence.

Since 2007, over 1,000 have people participated in Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® at UMKC. Their participation helped raise awareness of rape, sexual assault, and gender violence, as well as funds for the UMKC Women’s Center and Violence Prevention and Response Program.

The 2017 Walk will be held on Thursday, October 5, 5:30 p.m. at the University Playhouse (51st and Holmes Streets). Free parking for community members is available on the 5th and 6th levels of the Cherry Street Garage located at 51st Street and Cherry Street (click here for a map). Please note that parking anywhere else without a UMKC parking pass may result in ticketing.

Location: University Playhouse, 51st and Holmes Streets
After party at Pizza 51, 5060 Oak St, KCMO

Registration is required. See info.umkc.edu/womenc/programs/walk-a-mile-in-her-shoes/ for details and registration costs (registration will open in mid-August). Please note that we will have a limited number of high heels available for walkers — we encourage walkers to BYOS (bring your own shoes).
