In 1992 in Muro Lucano, Italy 60 miles from Naples, an 18-year-old girl came forward after experiencing sexual violence following her first driving lesson. The girl was wearing jeans and was forced by her instructor to get out of the car and was sexually assaulted and raped. When the girl appealed to a higher court to increase the sentence of the convicted rapist, the rapist appealed to the Italian Supreme Court, which overturned the conviction in 1998, citing that since the victim was wearing very tight jeans, she must have participated in the act. This horrific judgement and the victim-blaming that followed is what we strive to fight with the commemoration of Denim Day. it is a reminder to everyone that no matter how someone is dressed, it does not give people the authority or the opportunity to assault them or force them into anything. That at the end of the day, No will always mean just that - NO.
