April is sexual assault awareness month and a landmark court decision involving denim jeans led to an annual campaign and a movement in solidarity with survivors. The UOG Social Work Alliance, alongside the non-profit organization Erica’s House, will be hosting the annual Denim Day Wave. Denim Day grew out of a 1998 Italian Supreme Court decision that overturned a rape conviction because the victim wore tight jeans. Since then, it had grown to a national campaign wherein individuals can make a social statement by wearing denim jeans to protest against the misconceptions surrounding sexual violence and victim-blaming.
