Denim Day is an international day to bring awareness of victim blaming and the harmful myths that surround sexual assault.
Denim Day started when in 199o’s the Italian Parliament overturned a rape conviction because the victim was wearing jeans and they believed because the jeans are tight she must of helped her rapist take them off, implying she gave consent. The following day the women who worked in Parliament showed up wearing jeans to stand in solidarity with the victim.
Every year on the last Wednesday in April, we observe Denim Day as a way to stand in solidarity with survivors of sexual assault all over the world.
