JOPLIN, MO.--- Several guys had a chance to literally walk in a woman's shoes today. A High Heel Race was held at Missouri Southern State University in Joplin.

The Alpha Sigma Alpha Sorority hosted the event. It's part of the groups Sexual Assault Awareness Week. The guys have a new appreciation for what women go through every time they wear heels.

"All I could fit in here were my toes. It was excruciating," said Parker Bax, Hates Purple Heels. Those heels are not very comfortable. So, it's nice to see them put up with it for 5 minutes," said Ashley Brunner, Alpha Sigma Alpha.

A "Take Back the Night" rally will be held on Thursday at 7 p.m. on the MSSU Oval.
