April 22 is UCR Denim Day: Stand up against sexual violence

In a stand against sexual assault, the UCR Women’s Resource Center (WRC) is hosting the Denim Day Campaign to challenge sexual assault myths by wearing jeans and Denim Day pins on Wednesday, April 22.

The International Denim Day Campaign stems from an Italian Supreme court ruling 15 years ago. A judge overturned a rape conviction because, based on the judge’s logic, the victim could not have been raped because her jeans were too tight for her perpetrator to force them off of her. According to the judge, “Because the victim wore very, very tight jeans, she had to help him remove them, and by removing the jeans it was no longer rape but consensual sex.” The next day, people wore jeans in solidarity to protest this ruling.

Come by the Women’s Resource Center (260 Costo Hall) to pick up your Denim Day pins and fact sheet and submit a picture of you and your Denim Day gear to the Women’s Resource Center at nmart021@ucr.edu to post on the UCR “It’s On Us” and WRC Facebook.
