MEMPHIS (RNN / WMC) -

Men and women from around the world are gathering in Downtown Memphis to celebrate the fifth annual 'Walk a Mile in Her Shoes' march.

The Memphis Area Women's Council as well as local men and advocacy groups have been working together to produce this yearly international men's march to stop rape, sexual assault, and gender violence.

This event is intended to give men and their families the chance to raise community awareness on the sexual violence against women while walking in high-heels.

Last year's march joined with the 'Memphis Say No More' campaign, and men and women marched from the Memphis Cook Convention Center to the FedExForum.

The march will take place on October 27 at 5:30 p.m.
