EVANSTON, Ill. -- Through the cheers and high fives in Evanston, Ill., it was the men in heels on the ground getting the attention.

It is the cause that brought these men here today: a lighthearted event shedding light on a dark subject, raising money for the Northwest Center against Sexual Assault.

The event was a symbolic gesture, taking a stand on sexual assault; the awkward shuffle to bring a subject once taboo out into the open and on a stable footing to recovery.

The Northwest Center Against Sexual Assault hotline can be reached at 888-802-8890.
