My Message
There is an old saying: “You can't really understand another person's experience until you've walked a mile in their shoes.”

That’s why we’re asking men & women and self-identified men & women at Ryerson University to put on a pair of shoes (anything from high heels to flats to flip flops) or just wear your own shoes and COME JOIN the Ryerson White Ribbon Campaign to Walk A Mile in Her Shoes!

On Thursday September 29th, we’re all going to help end violence against women & girls and all gender-based violence, one step at time.

The fundraising and awareness-raising event asks men to reflect on the everyday realities for women and literally walk a mile in her shoes. This event does not seek to suggest that all women wear high heels or that wearing heels for a moment provides a full understanding of what it’s like to be a woman here in Toronto, or worldwide.

…but it's a step, and a declaration to take a step… it is a symbolic gesture and a statement that you want to stand up and start making a difference.

If you are interested in participating or more information, please email us at and visit


Go to and register with “Ryerson University”

Volunteer at the walk, put on some heels or wear your regular shoes, bring signs to help create awareness or just come and cheer us on. JOIN US!!!!!
