It wasn't graceful or pretty, but it was important. Dozens of young men at Western Kentucky University stumbled and wobbled in five inch red stilettos Wednesday to raise awareness about the issue of violence against women.

The university's inter-fraternity council organized the Walk In Her Shoes event. The men walked a mile around campus in the heels.

Organizers say they raised $1,000 for a local rape crisis center.
