On October 24th, W.O.M.A.N., Inc. participated in San Francisco State University’s “Clothesline Project/Walk in Her Heels” event. It was put together by a campus organization called The Safe Place, which serves as a resource center for sexual violence prevention and crisis intervention.
In honor of October being Domestic Violence Awareness Month, people were invited to paint a t-shirt telling a story about domestic violence, which was then displayed at the Cesar Chavez Student Center. Also, as a way to spread awareness and raise money for local domestic violence centers, men were invited to “take a walk in her shoes” by trading in their sneakers for high heels for the day. Various campus and local organizations were invited to table at the event and educate the public about their services.
Frances and Jaymie, who represented W.O.M.A.N., Inc. at this event, thoroughly enjoyed speaking with the campus community about W.O.M.A.N., Inc.’s services, networking with other organizations, and supporting the fight against domestic violence! W.O.M.A.N., Inc. would like to thank The Safe Place and SFSU for inviting us to this wonderful event, and we look forward to working with them in the future.
