MURFREESBORO — The image of men trying to propel themselves forward in pumps and stilettos might not conjure up thoughts of any serious issues.

However, the intrepid men of MTSU will try to “Walk a Mile in Her Shoes” to raise awareness about sexual violence starting at 5 p.m. Wednesday, April 10, at the Health, Recreation and Fitness Center on campus.

Members of the Interfraternity Council of Men, among others, will walk a mile in women’s shoes as part of the observance of Sexual Assault Awareness Month.

Registration will begin at 4:30 p.m. Immediately following the walk, participants will gather for free food and karaoke. The first 100 participants will receive a free T-shirt.

“Walk a Mile in Her Shoes” is sponsored by the MTSU Interfraternity Council, Fraternity and Sorority Life and the June Anderson Center for Women and Nontraditional Students.

For more information, contact Barbara Scales, director of the June Anderson Center, at 615-898-2193 or Barbara.Scales@mtsu.edu.
