Its Denim Day, Wednesday, April 25th. Wear denim in solidarity with people everywhere who are raising awareness about sexual assault and protesting victim blaming.

Why denim? Because in 1992 an 18 year old Italian woman was driven to a deserted place, threatened and raped by her driving instructor. He was imprisoned and he appealed. The appeals went to the supreme court, the ruling was overturned and the rapist was released. The rational of the court was that the young woman's jeans were so tight, that she must have helped take them off. So, they reasoned, the encounter was consensual and not rape.
