Mumbai, 23th December 2016- For many men in Mumbai it was an uncomfortable mile, but that was probably the point. Taking part in the ‘Walk A Mile In Her Shoes’ march through the center of town was supposed to be light-hearted, but also a little confronting. About two hundred people made their way from the Oberoi school international to the end point, many of whom were men wearing women's high heel shoes.
There is an old saying: "You can't really understand another person's experience until you've walked a mile in their shoes." Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® asks men to literally walk one mile in women's high-heeled shoes. It's not easy walking in these shoes, but it's fun and it gets the community to talk about something that's really difficult to talk about: gender relations and men's sexualized violence against women.
