What is Denim Day?
On April 28th, 2021, Someplace Safe, along with thousands of individuals and organizations across the country, will observe Denim Day during Sexual Assault Awareness Month to honor and support victims and survivors of sexual violence.
The campaign was originally triggered after a ruling by the Italian Supreme Court, where a rape conviction was overturned due to the belief that since the victim was wearing tight jeans, she must have helped her attacker remove them … thereby implying consent. The following day, the women of the Italian Parliament came to work wearing jeans, in solidarity with the victim. Today, wearing jeans on Denim Day has become a symbol against the misconceptions about sexual violence.
