Denim Day around Wisconsin!
Denim Day started as a scathing comment on rape culture in Italy, when the Supreme Court overturned a rape conviction because the victim’s jeans were so tight he couldn’t possibly have gotten them off without her help. The women of the Italian Parliament wore jeans in protest, and every April we do the same. It’s a reminder that someone’s outfit cannot give consent for them. In Madison, a press conference was held to renew our commitment to ending rape culture and sexual violence.
Other Wisconsin communities observed Denim Day too:
