DENIM DAY - WEAR JEANS

denim dayRape is a local, national and international problem. Wear jeans with a purpose on April 25 and make a social statement with your fashion.
Denim Day was organized as a reaction to a criminal case in Italy in the 1990s where charges against an alleged rapist of an 18-year old girl were dismissed. The court stated "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.”
