Denim Day - Make a Fashion Statement Against Rape

Tuesday, April 23 | 11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. | UC 1st Floor

Denim Day began in 1999 as a day to wear jeans as a visible means of protest against misconceptions that surround sexual assault. The events began following a court decision to overturn a conviction of a rapist after a judge argued that the victim was not raped 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.” Stop by the tables to learn about Denim Day, and pick up stickers and make buttons to raise awareness that there is no excuse and never an invitation to rape.
