Denim Day 2020 is on Wednesday, April 29th. Denim Day is an international campaign held in honor of Sexual Assault Awareness Month.
In Italy in 1992, an 18 year-old girl was raped by her driving instructor. The man who raped her was convicted, but it was later overturned by the Italian Supreme Court who said that because she was wearing “very tight jeans,” she must have helped the man remove them, and therefore it must have been consensual.
For the last 21 years, denim has been worn in protest of this ruling, and to raise awareness that clothing should never be used to determine legitimacy of a sexual assault case.
Wear denim on Wednesday, April 29th to support victims of sexual assault and raise awareness in April.
