What is Denim Day?
It is a sexual violence prevention and education campaign. The campaign originated in Italy when women in the Italian Parliament came to work wearing jeans in solidarity with the victim whose rape case was overturned by the Italian Supreme court. They argued “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.”
