For the past 17 years, Peace Over Violence has
run its Denim Day campaign on a Wednesday
in April in honor of Sexual Violence Awareness
Month. The campaign was originally triggered
by a ruling by the Italian Supreme Court where
a rape conviction was overturned because the
justices felt that since the victim was wearing
tight jeans she must have helped her rapist
remove her jeans, thereby implying consent.
The following day, the women in the Italian
Parliament came to work wearing jeans in
solidarity with the victim. Since then, wearing
jeans on Denim Day has become a symbol of
protest against erroneous and destructive
attitudes about sexual assault. In this rape
prevention education campaign we ask
community members, elected officials,
businesses and students to make a social
statement with their fashion by wearing jeans on
this day as a visible means of protest against
the misconceptions that surround sexual
assault. To learn more about DENIM DAY,
