Denim Day

Wednesday, April 24, 2024

12:00 PM-6:00 PM

Denim Day is a campaign held during 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. On this day, we wear denim in solidarity as a visible means of protest the misconceptions that surround sexual violence. Wear your denim and join us in writing messages of support, love, and strength on the denim shorts, skirts, jeans, and more that society says must have “implied consent."

Amy Spiller, Victim Services Coordinator with DUPD, members of the Student Counseling Center and representatives of the Philadelphia Sexual Assault Response Center (PSARC) will be present to provide information and resources, answer questions, and give out snacks.
