Denim Day



Wearing jeans on Demin Day has become a symbol of protest against erroneous and destructive attitudes about sexual assault.

In 1999 the Italian High Court overturned a rape conviction because the victim was wearing tight jeans at the time of her assault. The justices stated that the victim  must have helped her attacker remove her jeans, from which they inferred consent. People all around the world were outraged. Wearing jeans on this anniversary became an international symbol of protest against erroneous and destructive attitudes about sexual violence.
