Denim Day 2018

  • Time:
    All day event

Remember to wear your denim today

 

Wear your jeans, denim jackets, or denim purses in an effort to raise awareness about consent.

Consent is not the absence of no. Consent must be a clear and sober “yes”.

A person under the influence of drugs and alcohol cannot give consent. A person who is coerced is not consenting.

Denim Day began in 1998 when the Italian Supreme Court overthrew a rape conviction. The justices believed that the victim’s tight jeans could not have been removed without her assistance, implying consent. Since then, Denim Day has become a symbol of protest against erroneous and destructive attitudes about sexual assault.
