Students strut in heels to raise awareness to domestic violence

Article here. Excerpt:

'The clack of stilettos echoed throughout East Campus Oct. 21 as Delta Alpha Sigma Multicultural Sorority hosted their Walk A Mile in Her Shoes event.

At Brazos Park, participants sped down University Center Mall, looping near the Central Library before returning to the park while strapped in shiny red heels.

The event featured a special speaker and a race with obstacles, games and prizes. The event aimed to actively confront gender stereotypes and expectations, bringing awareness to domestic violence. All proceeds from the event went to SafeHaven of Tarrant County.

As a male, art education junior Emilio Infante Hernandez said with his privilege he can be a strong advocate for situations that impact women.

“To me, it means using my privilege to help a good cause, it means advocating for people like my sisters, like my mother, like my grandmother, like the amazing greek women that we have here at UTA, like my classmates who are all women,” Hernandez said.'

... about these events is the irony of the history of high heeled shoes. They were invented originally for shorter men to wear to add height. But they didn't really catch on for long. Men rather wisely decided they were dangerous and the whole thing was kind of stoopid. But yet women took to them. Go figure.
