Canadian Lawmakers Are Being Roasted on Social Media

Canadian lawmakers recently took part in an event that brings awareness to ending violence against women, but their efforts are being ridiculed on social media. 

Hope in High Heels was an event that was originally created as a way for boys and men to show their support for women experiencing domestic violence. But the strange part is that it’s not quite as simple as wearing pink, for example, which is customary for events during Breast Cancer Awareness Month, or a red ribbon to raise awareness for AIDS. This event involves cross-dressing.

“Violence against women is still prevalent in our society. Hope in Heels is an event that spreads awareness on violence against women while encouraging men and boys to be part of the solution. We wore their signature pink heels in support to this important cause,” Omar Alghabra, Minister of Transport, tweeted along with a video.  

MP Karina Gould also posted photos from the event, writing: “We welcomed @HaltonWomensPl to the Hill for the 4th annual Hope in High Heels on the Hill, to continue the conversation on systemic violence against women. Educating men and boys is part of the solution, and it is all of our responsibilities to end gender based violence.”

The lawmakers' actions did not sit well with most Twitter users.
