Today, April 26th is Denim Day. This is the day to show your support for Peace Over Violence and protest against the negative attitudes toward rape.
In honor of sexual violence month this Denim Day Campaign runs to promote awareness. This campaign started when the Italian Parliament overturned a rape conviction. Their reasoning was since the victim was wearing “tight” jeans, she must have helped her rapist get the jeans off which they are saying implies consent. Later that day after the ruling, a women came into Parliament wearing jeans to show her support and stand with the victim.
Since then, Peace Over Violence has started this campaign and to protest. There is no excuse and there is NEVER an invitation to rape. Rape is not a joke and wearing your jeans today shows your support.
This symbolizes Peace Over Violence.
