* Mark Isherwood AM wears high heels to highlight the Walk a Mile in Her Shoes’ event.
North Wales Assembly Member Mark Isherwood donned a pair of high heels today to help raise awareness of Welsh Women’s Aid’s ‘Walk a Mile in Her Shoes’ event.
'Walk a Mile in Her Shoes' is an internationally recognised campaign that asks men the world over to take the challenge of walking one mile in high heeled shoes to help raise awareness of violence against women.
There is a wide range of men taking part this year, including a rugby team!
Mr Isherwood said: “By wearing the high heels today I think I proved that I am prepared to do anything to help a good cause! I was only in the heels for a very short time and found it difficult to walk in them, so I commend all those men who will be walking a mile, and Women’s Aid for coming up with such a fun way to get the community to talk about something that is often very difficult to discuss: gender relations and sexual violence.”
