Denim Day History & Significance:
Denim Day has a dark history behind it. It all goes back to the year 1992 when a girl of 18 years was taken away to an isolated road, forcibly pulled out of her car, got her jeans removed, and then raped! The perpetrator was 45 years old, Who used to be her driving instructor.
The girl reported the rape & the perpetrator was arrested and prosecuted. That sick pervert then gets convicted of rape and faces jail. But a few years down the lane, he appealed that he didn’t rape her and the sex was consensual. What’s the disgusting part amid all this is that the Italian Supreme Court overturned the conviction and released the perpetrator. The court stated that the victim was wearing tight jeans and to remove that the victim had to help the perpetrator. So, she was not raped and the sex was consensual.
The verdict enraged the women in the Italian Parliament as it should have been. They launched a protest and gathered on the steps of the Supreme Court wearing Jeans. Their stance spoke loud and clear that rape is never consensual and the rapist should be blamed wholly. The news got international coverage and the California Senate and Assembly also followed suit. The first annual Denim Day was thus got held by “Peace over Violence’ in the year 1999, which served as a much-needed reminder that “There is never an invitation to rape.”
