Denim Day Is April 27


Demin Day is April 27th taking place during Sexual Assault Awareness Month.

People are encouraged to wear denim to combat victim blaming and educate others about sexual violence.

The campaign began after a ruling by the Italian Supreme Court where a rape conviction was overturned because the justices felt that since the victim was wearing tight jeans she must have helped the person who raped her remove her jeans, thereby implying consent. The following day, the women in the Italian Parliament came to work wearing jeans in solidarity with the victim.
