Sexual Assault Awareness Month: Denim Day

Wed. Apr 24, 2019 (All Day)

Denim Day is an international protest in response to the Italian Supreme Court’s overruling of a rape conviction in 1999. An Italian woman was raped, and when the case went to trial, the jury found her assailant guilty. The Supreme Court then overturned the ruling, saying that jeans are so difficult to remove, that the assailant could not have done so without the victim’s consent.

Join the GGC community in standing in support of victims of sexual assault by wearing denim on this day.
