Men In Heels...A Feminist Issue?



Last month, a group of men in Anchorage walked in high heels for "Walk A Mile In Her Shoes", an event to raise money and awareness for sexual assault. Is this an effective strategy for raising awareness? While the element of crossdressing certainly adds humor and playfulness that could potentially be transformative, what kind of laughter is it encouraging? What does it mean to link tropes of gender identity with sexual violence?
