April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month. April 24 is the 2019 Denim Day, the campaign was originally triggered by a ruling by the Italian Supreme Court where a rape conviction was overturned because the justices felt that since the victim was wearing tight jeans she must have helped her rapist remove her jeans, thereby implying consent.

The following day, the women in the Italian Parliament came to work wearing jeans in solidarity with the victim. This campaign has been going strong for 20 years. For more information visit http://denimdayinfo.org
