Denim Day supporting the fight to end sexual assault supported by Student Development and the Title IX Office
Denim Day is a day internationally known in which people are encouraged to wear jeans to raise awareness of the misconceptions that surround sexual violence. April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month and we as Florida Poly Phoenixes want to show our support in the fight to end sexual assault.
Why denim? After a ruling by the Italian Supreme Court where a rape conviction was overturned because the justices felt that since the victim was wearing tight jeans she must have helped the person who raped her remove her jeans, thereby implying consent. The following day, the women in the Italian Parliament came to work wearing jeans in solidarity with the victim.
