High heels no hindrance

Organised by East Fremantle resident Sandy Taylor, the event is the local version of an international men�s march to stop rape, sexual assault and gender violence.

She said last year�s event, held at Burswood Park, attracted three teams but more than 10 were due to sign up to the 2015 march, with all funds raised donated to White Ribbon Australia.

Ms Taylor said the event was based on the old saying �you can�t understand another person�s experience until

�It�s designed to be a fun event to raise awareness and money for a very serious problem. The event aims to highlight and bring to the forefront the problem of gender violence against women worldwide,� she said.

D�Orsogna�s Roseanne Thomas said she learned of the event as a member of Soroptimist International Fremantle.

�Sandy came to talk to us last year and we wanted to support her important message,� Ms Thomas said.

The Fremantle Soroptimists will donate D�Orsogna sausages for breakfast at the event, which will also be attended by 2014 participants Victoria Park MLA Ben Wyatt and South Fremantle Football Club captain Ryan Cook.
