Walk a mile in her shoes ®
Walk a mile in her shoes ® is a United Gender Movement, dedicated to ending sexualized violence. It was started in 2001 by Frank Baird and has grown to become a world-wide movement with tens of thousands of men raising millions of dollars for local rape crisis centres, domestic violence shelters and other sexualized violence education, prevention and remediation programs. In 2007, Frank formed Venture Humanity, Inc, a nonprofit 501(c)(3) corporation which develops peace, violence prevention and community projects. The mission of Walk a mile in her shoes ® is to create a unique and powerful public experience that educates individuals and communities about the causes of sexualized violence, provides them with prevention and remediation strategies and empowers them to further develop and implement the skills and knowledge interpersonally and politically. The organisation helps inform the world of the valuable contributions men are making to stop sexualized violence.
