Treasure Coast gears up for 'Walk a Mile in Her Shoes' to raise awareness of gender violence

Real men wear stilettos

STUART, Fla. -- Are you man enough to wear four-inch stilettos? The men of the Treasure Coast are.

In an effort to raise money and awareness for an end to gender violence, men from around the Treasure Coast will literally walk a mile in stilettos.

"Walk a Mile in Her Shoes," from the organization SafeSpace, is an international men's march to stop rape, sexual assault and domestic violence.

The event will be held in three counties on three separate days: Martin County on Saturday Oct. 6; St. Lucie County on Saturday, Oct. 13; and Indian River County on Saturday Oct. 27.
