Lufkin Denim Day

April 25, 2013 - April 26, 2013

Wearing JEANS on Denim Day reminds us of the harmful attitudes still prevalent surrounding sexual violence. Denim Day was established after a 1999 Italian Supreme Court ruling overturned a rape conviction simply because the woman was wearing JEANS when she was raped. They court’s reasoning rested on the belief that it would have been impossible for the attacker to remove the JEANS by himself, and therefore the victim must have facilitated her own assault.
