Walk a Mile in Her Shoes is a national program that has become a staple program to engage college males in sexual violence prevention on many college campuses. In this manuscript, I use queer theory and crip theory—a conceptual framework that merges queer and critical disability theory—to explore both the positive outcomes and potential harm done in the production and implementation of this event. I conclude the manuscript with considerations for educators seeking to engage college students in critical praxis around ending sexual violence on campus. These possibilities are rooted in Cohen's (1998) notion of reorienting future praxis around the very nonnormative and marginalized people whose lives are centered through queer and crip theory. Thus, I provide queered and cripped possibilities for how educators can reimagine Walk a Mile in Her Shoes as an sexual violence intervention.
