Denim Day Campaign

APRIL 28, 2021
HOW TO PARTICIPATE


Denim Day campaign is a way to support survivors and educate the community about all forms of sexual violence. This campaign was born after a ruling by the Italian Supreme Court where a rape conviction was overturned because the justices felt that since the victim/survivor was wearing tight jeans she must have helped the person who raped her remove her jeans, thereby implying consent. Now, every year we wear jeans with a purpose to end victim blaming, deconstruct harmful myths and make a social statement that there is no excuse and never an invitation to rape.
