Wear your favorite pair of jeans in observance of Denim Day to show support for sexual assault survivors. Denim Day grew from a 1999 court ruling in which the Italian Supreme Court overturned a rape conviction, arguing that because the victim was wearing tight jeans, she must have helped the perpetrator remove them, thereby implying consent. The ruling provoked outrage, and wearing denim on the anniversary of the ruling became an international movement to protest misguided attitudes about sexual violence and what constitutes consent.
