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.
