Talent showcase celebrating positive expression of women's sexuality
Denim Day originated as a protest against the Italian Supreme Court verdict of a 1997 rape case, which stated, because the victim was wearing tight jeans during the assault, she must have helped her perpetrator remove her jeans and, therefore, consented.
Now a worldwide event and movement, state agencies, businesses and other groups in Colorado are asked to allow their employees to pay $5 in exchange for wearing jeans on Colorado Denim Day, April 26.
Wearing jeans is a conversation starter and visual sign of your support of survivors and an end to sexual violence. Colorado Denim Day demonstrates the power of communities coming together to support survivors and take a stand against sexual violence.
