'In Her Shoes' is an innovative new walking tour app, launched in the London borough of Waltham Forest, that is designed to take users through an innovative tour of the area while pointing out stops significant because of their association with causes championed by famous female activists of the past.

The app introduces users to such figures as Hibo Wardere, who survived female genital mutilation, and Arifa Nasim, an activist who campaigned against child marriage and honor killings. What's great about the app is that it features women from diverse ethnic backgrounds associated with different causes at different points in history.

Ultimately, this mobile walking tour app highlights social pioneers and champions to help users better understand the contribution made by women to society's progress.
