Background: 

The Denim Day campaign takes place on a Wednesday in April to observe Sexual Assault Awareness Month. The campaign started after the Italian Supreme Court overturned a rape conviction because the justices concluded the victim’s jeans were too tight for the perpetrator to remove without her assistance and consent. The following day, the women in the Italian Parliament came to work wearing jeans in solidarity with the victim. Denim Day is a response to this case and a statement of the international activism that it sparked.
