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 jeans. 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.
On April 26, 2017 universities, colleges, junior high and high schools, businesses, organizations and individuals will participate in Denim Day events. Join the campaign—step forward take a stand against rape.
