Traditionally, Bulgaria celebrates today the International Women’s Day. The fest has got rid of its political nuance over the past years, turning simply into an occasion for men to show their positive attitude towards women around them. A Walk a Mile in Her Shoes march was organized for a third year in a row by the representation of the EP downtown Sofia. The idea is men, wearing high heels to express their support for sex equality, solidarity with women’s issues and to attract attention to domestic and sexual abuse in Bulgaria. According to the EU Agency for Fundamental Rights in 2014 28 percent of Bulgarian women were victims of physical or sexual violence by their partners.
