It’s Denim Day

28 Apr

It’s wear-tight-jeans-so-you-don’t-get-raped day, which should be every day.

From Change.org:

If you wear tight jeans, it’s impossible to rape you.

At least, so declared an Italian Supreme Court Justice in the 1990s. And then the women of Italy descended on Parliament decked in denim, turning blue jeans into a powerful symbol not of casual Fridays, but of protest against institutionalized rape apologism.

Today is Denim Day. As part of Change.org’s Sexual Assault Action Week, we ask that you join ranks with the women of the world and pull on your favorite pair of blue jeans — because your clothes have something important to say about sexual violence on this day.
