A MAGNIFICENT MILE IN THESE SHOES?
The Chicago Bar Association's Young Lawyers Section is in the middle of its Violence Against Women Awareness Week. And the men are invited to participate by trading in their workout shoes (shown above at the group's Most Fit Lawyer competition) for high heels and literally Walk a Mile In Her Shoes. It's a one-mile walk through the Loop to raise awareness about the cause and effects of sexualized violence. Details »
