National Denim Day: Wear Your Jeans With a Purpose!

Today wear your jeans with a purpose! Day, held on Wednesday, May 15, 2018 is set to raise awareness of rape and sexual assault.

The story behind the National Denim Day

In Italy in the 1990s, an 18-year-old was raped by her 45-year-old driving instructor. The assailant was arrested, convicted, and sentenced to jail. He appealed the sentence, and the case made its way to the Italian Supreme Court. The Supreme Court released the perpetrator and dismissed all charges, on the grounds that “because the victim wore very, very tight jeans, she had to help him remove them… and by removing the jeans… it was no longer rape but consensual sex.”

Women in the Italian Parliament wore jeans in protest, and the California Senate and Assembly did the same. This is when Denim Day was born.
