In the mid-'90s, Frank Baird started an initiative that sought to get men more involved in the fight against sexual and domestic violence against women. Too often in such debates, men are seen only as the problem, rather than part of the potential solution. In 2001, Baird proposed an event called "Walk a Mile in Her Shoes", in which men take to the streets in high heels to promote awareness of violence against women, and to raise money for relevant charities.

The event continues to go from strength to strength. At the core of the debate around gender violence and inequality, however, is the fact that the world is a different place for men and women. At work, on a date, or out socially, there are different opportunities and expectations for each of the sexes—this playlist takes a look at just some of the ways in which men and women experience the world differently.
