“I know now that I have choices. I don’t have to accept bad behaviour”
“I’m a really good person who didn’t know what healthy meant. Now I do.”
“I feel safer and realize the way I have reacted to life’s situations is normal.”
“I never knew domestic violence was unhealthy. The Women’s Centre has provided me with education and knowledge.”
“The Women’s Centre provided me with a safe place to heal and figure things out without feeling judged.”
“Acceptance of self and situation. I am learning to be my own self.”
“It’s okay to cry; it’s okay because I’m not lost anymore.”
“Today I know what it means to be safe. I will never go back to feeling afraid again.”
There’s an old saying,
“You can’t really understand another person’s experience until you’ve walked a mile in their shoes.”
Frank Baird created Walk A Mile in Her Shoes® in 2001.
Each year an ever-increasing number of men are joining Walk A Mile In Her Shoes® International Men’s March to Stop Rape, Sexual Assault and Gender Violence. Walk A Mile In Her Shoes® is a fun opportunity for men to educate the community about a very serious subject and to rally the community to take action to prevent sexualized violence – and raise money for women’s shelters and the services they provide in their communities.
