Dollars for Denim Day

April 27, 2016

In 1992 an 18-year-old in Italy was raped by her driving instructor. She pressed charges and won her case, but the instructor appealed and the case went to the Italian High Court. In 1999 the court overturned the conviction with a member of the High Court declaring that since the victim wore very tight jeans, the instructor could not have removed them himself; therefore, the victim must have willingly participated. Women of the Italian legislature protested the decision by wearing jeans. As news of the decision spread, so did the protest. Today, all around the world, organizations coordinate communitywide Denim Days to show support of survivors and raise awareness about the crimes of sexual assault. Thank you for doing more to help us take a stand against sexual violence by participating in 2016 Denim Day.
