Denim Day 2017

Wednesday, April 26

In the 1990s, the Italian Supreme Court overturned a rape conviction because of the victim's tight jeans. The next day, women of the Italian parliament began wearing jeans to work to protest the verdict. Since 1999, people all over the world have worn denim on Denim Day to protest the misconceptions that keep survivors of sexual violence from healing and from justice.
