Denim Day
Start Date: 4/24/2019 All Day
End Date: 4/24/2019
Event Description:
Peace Over Violence established the Denim Day campaign in response to a ruling by the Italian Supreme Court that overturned a rape conviction based on the victim's tight jeans. Following the ruling, women in the Italian Parliament wore jeans to work in solidarity with the victim. Since then, wearing jeans on Denim Day has become a symbol of protest against erroneous and destructive attitudes about sexual assault.

Students and employees are asked to make a social statement by wearing jeans on Wednesday as a visible means of protest against the misconceptions that surround sexual assault.

In addition to wearing denim, please consider making a donation to the Office of Social Equity's Discretionary Fund, which is used to support sexual violence education and awareness programs on campus.

Questions can be directed to the Office of Social Equity at (814) 732-2167.
