Come Walk In My Shoes explores the ideas around how women are viewed based on trying to walk in someone else's shoes. The piece shows us how femininity and the various walks of life can be deconstructed and reconstructed based on the shoe you choose to wear or try to wear. How is this affecting the way you walk , move and behave? Are these shoes yours?
