HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

A group of men put their best foot forward, and into a women's high heel.

It was all for the Walk a Mile in her Shoes event. The men walked across the campus of Southern Miss in red high heel shoes to promote prevention and education about Sexual Assault Awareness.

Sigma Nu Fraternity and the Shafer Center for Crisis Intervention hosted the walk. Shafer Center Prevention Educator, Riley Rouse says it's important to have the support of the men, because statistically they are the aggressors.

"The majority of people who sexually assault other people are men. That is not to say that women don't, but it is the majority of men. So, we just use men as a tool to say you know real men don't rape and that kind of thing," said Rouse.

A Walk in her Shoes is a nation wide event hosted each April.
