Group takes stand against gender issues, sexual violence

Several dozen students, staff and faculty members at the Penn State, Lehigh Valley, campus took a stand April 7 to raise awareness of gender issues and sexual violence.

The event featured male students and faculty stepping out in red high heels to "walk a mile in her shoes" to provide a better appreciation of the problem of sexual violence, particularly toward women, in the school's first-ever high-heeled walk by males around campus.

Many got into the spirit of the occasion to provide light-hearted images in the gender reversal event.
