National Denim Day

On April 24, 2019, millions of people across the world will wear jeans with a purpose, support survivors, and educate themselves and others about all forms of sexual violence.

For the past 20 years, Peace Over Violence has run its Denim Day campaign on a Wednesday in April in honor of Sexual Assault Awareness Month. The campaign began after 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 the person who raped her 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. Peace Over Violence developed the Denim Day campaign in response to this case and the activism surrounding it. Since then, wearing jeans on Denim Day has become a symbol of protest against erroneous and destructive attitudes about sexual harassment, abuse, assault and rape. In this sexual violence prevention and education campaign we ask community members, elected officials, businesses and students to make a social statement with their fashion statement by wearing jeans on this day as a visible means of protest against the misconceptions that surround sexual violence.

Engage in Denim Day with local organizations such as New Orleans Family Justice Center, LAFASA, and STAR!

Post your denim photos online with #AskMeWhyImWearingDenim and #DenimDay2019.

Louisiana Denim Day

DENIM DAY LOUISIANA IS APRIL 10, 2019

MAKE A SOCIAL STATEMENT WITH YOUR FASHION STATEMENT: SUPPORT SURVIVORS OF SEXUAL ASSAULT BY WEARING JEANS ON APRIL 10.

Since 1999, wearing jeans on Denim Day has become a symbol against destructive attitudes surrounding sexual assault that blame victims for the assaults perpetrated against them. The Denim Day campaign was originally triggered by a ruling in 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 the rapist remove her jeans, thereby implying consent. The following day, women in the Italian Parliament came to work wearing jeans in solidarity with the victim. Denim Day always takes place in April, which is recognized as Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM).

Engage in Denim Day with local organizations such as New Orleans Family Justice Center, LAFASA, and STAR!

Post your denim photos online with #AskMeWhyImWearingDenim and #DenimDay2019.
