Wear your jeans with a purpose on Wednesday, April 28, in honor of Denim Day! Denim Day is a campaign to raise awareness of sexual assault violence and to support survivors. It was created in response to a rape conviction overturned in 1992 by the Italian Supreme Court. The justices said that since the survivor was wearing tight jeans, she must have helped the person who raped her remove them, thereby implying consent. Individuals are encouraged to wear jeans to combat victim-blaming and protest against the misconceptions that surround sexual assault. Take a stand on April 28 by wearing your jeans and educating others why you wear jeans on Denim Day! For more information and events for Denim Day, please visit denimdayinfo.org.
