On Sunday the men of the Interfraternity Council hosted the “Walk a Mile in Her Shoes” event on College Place where the men of the college wore high heels to walk a mile around the campus. This is an international men’s march to stop sexual assault, rape and gender violence, as well as a fantastic opportunity to raise awareness for the sexual violence of men against women. It raises awareness and money for the local Williamsport YWCA. The YWCA is currently focused on issues such as homelessness, sexual assault, child advocacy and domestic violence and the men of the college were happy to support this cause.

There were approximately 30 to 35 people in attendance this past weekend to raise awareness.
Petchock concluded by stating that it was “definitely a fun time while at the same time raising awareness for something that needs to be put to an end.”
Overall “Walk a Mile in Her Shoes” was a successful event.
