TAKE A STAND ON #DENIMDAY (April 24).
In 1999, an Italian High Court overturned a rape conviction after declaring that, because the victim wore tight jeans, she had to help remove them, and removing the jeans signaled consensual sex, not rape. Enraged by the verdict, women protested the ruling by wearing jeans on the steps of parliament. As news of this decision spread internationally, so did the protest.
#DENIMDAY WAS BORN.
