Fighting Domestic Violence Against Women With Male Cross-Dressing

The International Men’s March to Stop Rape, Sexual Assault & Gender Violence is organizing events all over the place that have men walking the streets in a show of support to female victims of domestic violence. The gimmick? Have the dudes wear heels, so they will, literally, walk a mile in her shoes. “The sentiment is lovely and the aim is admirable,” offers Salon‘s Tracy Clark-Flory. “Still, the concept itself strikes me as too cute by half, much like other playful ‘awareness-raising’ campaigns of late, like the push to reveal the color of your bra on Facebook to help fight breast cancer. Effective activism should be made more accessible, but I do wonder what is lost by turning it into a silly spectacle.” One person’s spectacle is another person’s pride parade.

    @alan brickman: I assume you emerged fully formed the earth… I don’t understand how anyone can be against feminism. It’s a struggle parallel to our own, an advancement towards equality by feminists is still an advancement towards equality and all equality is good equality.
