Calling All Men to Walk A Mile In Her Shoes!

We are once again calling all men to stand up and pull on those pumps to Walk A Mile in Her Shoes®! It's not easy walking in these shoes, but it's fun and it gets the community to talk about something that's really difficult to talk about: gender relations and men's sexualized violence against women. We need you! Join us for the FREE event! Sign up early to make sure we have your red high heels waiting! Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® 2019 will be on Saturday, April 13 in Uptown Normal | Check-in 10:30 a.m. | Walk 11 a.m.

What We Do

YWCA McLean County is on a mission to eliminate racism, empower women, stand up for social justice, help families and strengthen communities. We proudly serve people of all backgrounds through every stage of life – our youngest child care clients at six weeks old to the seniors served through our home care services. We are an inclusive organization, serving everyone regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, gender, sexual orientation, or ability.

Stepping Stones

Sexual assault is a crime motivated by a need to control, humiliate and harm. Perpetrators use sexual assault as a weapon to hurt and dominate others. Learn more here.
