What is Denim Day? Denim Day was originally triggered in 1999 when the Italian High Court overturned a rape conviction because the victim waswearing tight jeans at the time of the assault. The jUstices stated that the victim must have helped her attacker remove her jeans, from which they inferred consent. The following day, the women in the Italian Parliament came to work wearing jeans in solidarity with the victim. People all around the world were outraged. Wearing jeans on this anniversary became an international symbol of protest against erroneous and damaging attitudes about sexual violence. Advocates for this cause continue various activities throughout the month of April. If you stop into PCIRC/RCC you may see staff wearing a teal ribbon or our laundry line of jeans in support of Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM). Remember consent is when BOTH people say "YES" to sex. If you see something that isn't right, Step Up... Take Action and be an Active Bystander. For more information or to get support, contact Kathleen O'Bryant at the Rape Crisis Center at 530-283-4415 ext. 15.
