Description

Please join us in wearing your jeans and supporting this cause! Denim Day has been internationally celebrated since 1999 in protest of an Italian High Court ruling that overturned a rape conviction because the victim was wearing tight jeans, and therefore must have invited her assailant. Enraged by the verdict, women of the Italian Legislature protested the decision by wearing jeans to work. As news of the decision spread, so did the protest, reaching across the world. On this day, please wear your jeans in support of people everywhere who should be protected, regardless of what they are wearing
