Denim Day 2016

Today is Denim Day in LA and the US. According to, it all started with a ruling by the Italian Supreme Court where the rape conviction was overturned, ruling that the rap victim was wearing tight jeans and must have helped her rapist remove the jeans, thereby consenting to the rape. The next day, the women in the Italian Parliament all wore jeans to work in solidarity with the victim. And in 1999, Denim Day was born in LA. 

By wearing denim, you can help raise awareness of rape and sexual assault, because it is never, ever ok to assault or be assaulted. Spread the word!
