MEN, women and children have walked proudly together to show their solidarity towards eliminating domestic and sexual violence in our community.
Walk a Mile in Her Shoes started with a march at d'Darcy Doyle Place on Wednesday followed by a candle lighting vigil and speeches by domestic violence advocates for the remembrance ceremony.
Ipswich Women's Centre Against Domestic Violence community development worker Michelle Dang said it honoured the lives of women and children lost to domestic violence.
"We had approximately 150 people turn up the event," Ms Dang said. "It was a great to see men, women and children show support in taking action against domestic and family violence.
"With heels, signs, placards and prams, we marched the streets of Ipswich, making a statement about what we think is important.
"We had inspiring speeches from survivors of domestic violence encouraging the community to speak out and support survivors and from Federal MP Shayne Neumann urging men to not remain silent when they witness any forms of violence."
She said it was vital that women and children could walk the streets at night feeling safe and just as important that they came back home and felt safe.
