History of Denim Day

  • In 1999, the Italian High Court overturned a rape conviction because the victim was wearing tight jeans at the time of the assault
  • The justices stated that the victim must have helped her attacker remove her jeans, an action from which they inferred consent
  • People all around the world were outraged; wearing jeans on this anniversary became an international symbol of protest against erroneous and destructive attitudes about sexual violence
  • For 16 years, the “Denim for Dollars” event has helped raise much-needed funds for sexual assault victims
  • Wear jeans with a purpose on Wednesday, April 29, 2015
