Description: 

Men from all walks of life will walk in women’s high heeled shoes from the courthouse to Yoctangee Park Entrance to protest rape, sexual assault & gender violence. Proceeds from sponsored walkers in the event will support The Ross County Sexual Assault Response Team’s violence prevention efforts, and rape crisis services in Southeastern Ohio.

WHO:  Male community members and leaders will proclaim their solidarity with the rape prevention movement by marching in high heels, with women and children marching at their side. Educators, students, law enforcement officers, elected and appointed officials, and others are expected to participate.

WHEN: The march is scheduled to begin at 12:00 p.m. with registration starting at 11:00am at the Ross County Courthouse Stairs. Men, women, and children are invited to participate and walk-on registrants are welcome. Men are encouraged (but not required) to walk in women’s shoes and participants are being asked to obtain $10.00 in sponsorship due April 5, 2010.

“One in three women have experienced gender violence in her lifetime. A woman is raped every 90 seconds in America,” Said Frank Baird, Founder of the March. “That means someone you know, someone you care about has been the victim of sexual violence. This violence does not just affect women. Men are hurt and angered when women they care about are raped. Men are hurt and angered when they try to develop relationships with women in an atmosphere of fear and mistrust and blame. And the same violence that targets women also targets men because rape isn’t about sex, it’s about power, control and violence.” Inspired by the old saying, “You can’t understand a person’s experience until you’ve walked a mile in their shoes,” men will literally walk one mile in women’s high-heeled shoes.

The Cleveland International Film Festival is the largest and most prestigious festival in the MidWest.  April 9th will be the Premiere of the film Speechless.

Speechless examines sexual assault and recovery through power / powerlessness, empathy, communication, and gender stereotypes.

Synopsis:

Desmond has a secret he cannot share with anyone.  His grades are slipping, rumors are swirling and he feels powerless, especially when he sees his sister being hurt too. With the support of his father and a new friend, Desmond is able to tell his story of being sexually assaulted and end the cycle of abuse.   Desmond regains his power when he uses his voice.

Speechless was written by Cleveland high school student Roxanne Lasker-Hall in response to the Scenarios USA REAL DEAL curriculum and writing contest.  The film is directed by Karyn Kusama (Girlfight and Jennifer’s Body).
