Walk A Mile In Her Shoes®
Here come the men in heels! Their mission? To stomp out sexual violence by walking a mile in her shoes.
Every year in April, YWCA Bradford’s Victims’ Resource Center raises awareness of sexual violence with the Walk a Mile in Her Shoes event, a men’s march against rape, sexual assault and gender violence. This upcoming year’s event will be held on Thursday, April 12, 2018 and the walk starts at 6:00 pm.
Every two minutes, another American is sexually assaulted. As a community, we cannot stand by without taking action. We are asking you to consider a sponsorship so, together, we can do our part to end sexual violence.
Each year, the YWCA Bradford celebrates extraordinary community women by honoring those who foster growth and development through service, leadership, and dedication at our annual Leader Luncheon. This year’s event will be held on Wednesday, March 7th, 2018 at 12:00 p.m. at the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford. Nominations are due by Friday, December 15, 2017.
Honored in 2016 were Jeanie Satterwhite, Leader Award, and Brooke Kane-Walker, Young Leader Award. You can see our 2016 Honor Board by clicking the link below.
We look forward to seeing you at this year’s event, acknowledging the work of so many phenomenal women!

Walk A Mile in Her Shoes
Into our fifth year in 2018, this annual event raises funds for sexual assault services. We recognize the importance of men’s involvement in raising awareness to this critical issue, and to the power that men hold in helping to stem and prevent incidents of sexual assault. We are honored to walk arm in arm with our brothers in solidarity!

Leader Luncheon 2015
In 2015, we celebrated past YWCA leaders who paved the way for us to do the hard work we do every day. The YWCA has a history of quiet perseverance, of women who lead and do and serve with little fanfare, and this particular year we wanted to shout in gratitude and acknowledgement for all they have done to make our paths smoother and easier.
