Denim Day

April 24 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm

Denim Day is a campaign in honor of Sexual Assault Awareness Month. The campaign began after a ruling by the Italian Supreme Court when 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. The [Not Just] Women’s Center (NJWC) invites you to raise awareness of sexual violence by wearing jeans for the day. For more information, contact the NWJC at thenjwc@su.edu
