Mile in Her Shoes

Mile in Her Shoes

While the image of male USF students walking around campus in high heels is pretty funny, the reason why a few hundred of them recently did so is decidedly serious. This week's University Beat on WUSF-TV takes you to "Walk a Mile in Her Shoes," an event designed to raise awareness about relationship violence and sexual assault.

Mile in Her Shoes

A few hundred male USF students learned what it's like to walk a mile in women's shoes - figuratively AND literally - at a sexual-assault awareness event. This week's University Beat on WUSF-FM brings you the high-heeled details of the first walk on a college campus to be recognized by the national "Walk a Mile in Her Shoes" organization.
