Letter from President Broderick
I challenge all male members of the Monarch community to join me on March 21 in “Walk a Mile in Her Shoes,” part of a national program to raise awareness about sexual violence and relationship violence against women.
One in five women in our country has been the victim of sexual assault. It doesn’t affect just them. It touches the men in their lives, their families, friends, co-workers and communities.
This will be the fourth year our campus will participate in this event. I encourage you to join us to make a clear statement that sexual violence must never be accepted or ignored.
In recognition of the old saying that you can’t understand other people’s experiences until you’ve walked a mile in their shoes, we encourage men to put on a pair of women’s high heels, which will be provided at the event. Sneakers are fine for women. But more important than your choice of footwear is your decision to participate.
“Walk a Mile in Her Shoes” will begin at 12:30 p.m. on Tuesday, March 21 on Kaufman Mall. You can go to https://givepul.se/evgq4 to register. I look forward to seeing you there.
John R. Broderick
