Denim Days 2013

In Italy 1999, the National High Court overturned a rape case because the victim was wearing jeans and it was thought that jeans would have been too tight to pull off without the woman’s consent. The ruling sparked a nationwide protest where anti-rape activists wore jeans.

This year, the Gender Justice League will host Denim Days the week of April 15-19, 2013. Events include:
