DENIM DAY TAKES PLACE ON APRIL 24 IS AN EVENT IN WHICH PEOPLE ARE ENCOURAGED TO WEAR DENIM TO RAISE AWARENESS OF RAPE AND SEXUAL ASSAULT. IN 1992 ROME A 45 YR OLD DRIVING INSTRUCTOR WAS ACCUSED OF RAPE WHEN HE PICKED UP AN 18 YEAR OLD GIRL FOR HER FIRST DRIVING LESSON. HE SEXUALLY ASSAULTED HER, THEN TOLD HER THAT IF SHE WAS TO TELL ANYONE HE WOULD KILL HER. ONCE SHE PRESSED CHARGES THE RAPIST WAS CONVICTED OF A LESSER CHARGE OF INDECENT EXPOSURE SAYING THE VICTIM JEANS WERE SO TIGHT THAT THE ONLY WAY TO HAVE GOTTEN THEM OFF IF SHE HELPED HER ATTACKER REMOVE HER JEANS THUS MAKING THE ACT “CONSENSUAL”. THE DAY AFTER THE DECISION WAS MADE WOMEN IN THE ITALIAN PARLIAMENT PROTESTED BY WEARING JEANS AND HOLDING PLACE-CARDS THAT READ “JEANS:AN ALIBI FOR RAPE”. #denimday#mybodymyconsent#italiana
