Denim Day 2012
Wednesday, April 25th, is the 13th Annual Denim Day in LA. Denim Day is a sexual violence prevention and education campaign to increase awareness about sexual violence, prevention and available resources for sexual violence survivors.
Raise awareness about sexual violence.
Wear denim on April 25, 2012.
Let your personal fashion statement be a social statement on Denim Day.
Denim Day evolved following a 1992 Italian court case where the judge overruled the conviction of a rapist saying the victim "had to help him (the rapist) remove them, and by removing the jeans it was no longer rape but consensual sex.”. Yearly since 1999, Peace Over Violence has organized an annual Denim Day in LA & USA. Last year, over 2.6 million people from across the U.S. and several foreign countries wore jeans on Denim Day as a visible means of protest against the misconceptions that surround sexual assault.
