“You can’t really understand another person’s experience until you’ve walked a mile in their shoes.”
Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® is an event designed to raise awareness about violence against women by asking men to literally walk a mile in women’s shoes – high heeled shoes. Man Up Nantucket will be walking to help raise awareness about sexual violence against women, and to raise money for A Safe Place. All proceeds will go directly to A Safe Place in order to help support their programs, which serve the women, men, and children of Nantucket whose lives have been affected by domestic and sexual violence.
Man Up Nantucket is a locally founded group that works to address the very real problems of domestic violence and sexual assault on Nantucket. Our belief is that being a man involves using our strength to stand up and speak out against those who perpetrate and condone sexual and domestic violence. We encourage other men to join us to help create an environment that promotes respect and equality, and that is safe for all women, children, and men.
