What is Denim Day?
In 1997 in Rome, a young woman was forcefully raped by her driving instructor. After the initial ruling of "guilty", the Italian Supreme Court overturned this ruling because the presiding judge believed that since the victim was wearing tight jeans she must have helped her rapist remove her jeans, thereby making the act consensual.  The following day, the women in the Italian Parliament came to work wearing jeans and carrying placards that read “Jeans: An Alibi for Rape” in support of victim. The Denim Day campaign was created in response to this case.  Since then, wearing jeans on Denim Day has become a symbol of protest against destructive attitudes about sexual assault and the victim-blaming that occurs so often in our society.

How Can You Help?
The statistics of those who are sexually assaulted and abused every day are mind-blowing. However, we have very few resources for our survivors. While we rely heavily on government grant aid, that is not enough to provide the necessary services to our survivors. Please help us raise funds to support education, advocacy and direct services to those who need it most: the survivors of sexual assault and sexual abuse.
