Walk A Mile in Her Shoes


The numbers on Sexual Assault are staggering.
The perpetrators are over 90% male.

With that background, the YWCA of Silicon Valley holds a Sexual Assault awareness event called "Walk a Mile in Her Shoes". This is my second year participating.

Before: one hairy pair of blazingly white legs.
Here's the "after" picture. Notice how much the shoes dress a guy up. The socks were Mary's inspiration.

The finished ensemble:
I'm wearing maybe 2 inch heels. The guy on the left is balancing on about twice that height.
I really liked the coordination with the teal jersey, here.
And what event isn't improved by a guy in a tux and 4 inch lucite heels?

I want to give a really big thank you to each of my supporters:
  • Kevin Collins
  • Andrew Mendelsohn
  • Judi Cushing
  • Greg Waters
  • Katia Rubio
  • Monica Brillante
  • Donovan Dolojan
  • Karen Okamoto
  • Jim Lee
  • John Peck
  • Hoong-Sun Im
  • Jeff Segall
  • Susan Lechner
  • Natalie Thomas
  • Kyle Napoli
  • Jahan Ghofraniha
  • Chul Hoon Kim

I don't know what the total was for the event, but together, we eighteen people raised over $800 to support the work of the YWCA and the Rape Crisis Center. Thanks, again.
And thanks to the YWCA of Silicon Valley for putting on a great event and for all the important work they're doing in the community.
