DUBOIS – All male students at Penn State DuBois are encouraged to join a group of their peers in a march against domestic violence by taking a lap around campus wearing high heels.
The Walk a Mile in Her Shoes event is scheduled for 12 p.m. Oct. 1, beginning in Schoch Plaza, at the center of campus, and extending down Liberty Boulevard, circling exactly one mile back to the starting point. The men will wear high heels supplied by the Office of Student Life.
Walk a Mile in Her Shoes is a men’s march meant to raise awareness of the battle against rape, sexual assault and gender violence. The event is organized by Passages of Clarion, Clearfield and Jefferson counties, in conjunction with the Penn State DuBois Office of Student Life. The idea behind the march is to get men more involved in issues surrounding sex crimes.
Members of the public are encouraged to come out and show support for the men participating in the march.
