Denim Day

Denim Day

The campaign was originated by a ruling handed down by the Italian Court of Appeals where a rape conviction was overturned. The hearing official felt that since the victim was wearing very tight jeans she must have helped her rapist 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. Please join us in solidarity to speak out against survivor-shaming by wearing denim for the day.
