UNI Fraternity Brothers Wear Heels for a Cause
CEDAR FALLS, Iowa (AP) - Fraternity brothers at the University of Northern Iowa have put on red high heel shoes to raise awareness about sexual assault.
The group gathered Thursday at the Cedar Falls campus as part of the annual Walk a Mile in Her Shoes event. It's part of an international campaign against rape, sexual assault and gender violence.
The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier reports a group of sorority sisters helped guide the men as they clacked down a one-mile stretch of campus.
The nonprofit Riverview Center in Waterloo helped host the event. They're putting together different events to promote sexual assault prevention during the month.
