        ANCHORAGE, Alaska — A few dozen men seeking to raise awareness for sexual assault violence against women tried to walk a mile in their shoes Friday _ literally.



        Among the participants _ some burly and others bearded _ in the fourth annual "Walk a Mile in her Shoes" event at the University of Alaska Anchorage was the head of Alaska State Troopers, Col. Keith Mallard, who slipped out of one of his red suede peep-toe shoes during the walk.

        "I had a blowout," Mallard said sheepishly. "It didn't hinder my progress any. I just had to pull to the side and get a tire change."

        The men teetered precariously along the mile-long route, trying to raise money for a local nonprofit that supports sexual assault victims. Donations to Standing Together Against Rape will go toward banishing sexual assaults and other acts of violence against women.

        The men were game, even if it meant nearly tripping over their own stilettos.

        Vashon Hilliard, whose work involves helping the disabled, stuffed his feet into a colleague's black patent leather pumps. The shoes were a snug fit, but Hilliard didn't let that stop him.

        "I just decided it's for a great cause, and why not?" he said.

        "Men want to make a public statement that they detest sexual violence," said Keeley Olson, STAR's program manager. "A lot of them have told me that they walk for their sisters, they walk for their mothers, they walk for their daughters. They walk because they care about women."

        Amusement factor aside, the underlying message was serious. Signs with messages including "No Means No!", "Got Consent???", "Shatter the Silence," and "Alaskans Can End Sexual Violence" bobbed along in the hands of participants.

        Walt Monegan, former head of the state troopers, participated in what he said people were calling old lady shoes. "I'm old, so it's OK," he said.

        I just love the sexy shoes at the front there...those pink platform ones...very tasty indeed.

        It is indeed a very powerful message which I hope hits home.

        I can tell you a story about a friend of mine, who was married to an extremely violent man.  He was literally beating her up on the street and a policeman was walking past.  She asked for help and all he said was "sorry madam...its domestic...we don't get involved".  This was many years ago and now the police take violence against women (wives and partners included) very seriously. 

        Thank heavens for people like these men who make a difference.

        How can police walk right past something like that? 

        Reminds me of the gal who died because the paramedics (right next to her) were on break.  Unfreakin'believable.

        Great message with the men in heels.  I will say, I can't see my husband strutting down the street in a pair of heels, no matter the cause.
