At Emory, we honour National Denim Day a week earlier than other folks (b/c final exams start on the national denim day). So on April 20th, we encourage everyone to wear jeans and denim to stand in solidarity against victim-blaming and in support of survivors of sexual violence. But wait, there's more! Emory SGA has pledged to donate $1 for every picture we receive of people participating in #EmoryDenimDay. So don't forget to take a picture on the 20th and either send it to us (firstname.lastname@example.org) or tag us on social media when you share it (Twitter: @RespectWell or Instagram: @Respect_Program). And don't forget to use #EmoryDenimDay!
Join the Facebook event and see everyone's awesome denim pictures on the 20th! https://www.facebook.com/events/1670266243235441/
The day originates from a 1992 case in Italy when a court overturned a rapists' conviction after deciding the victim's jeans were too tight to be taken off without help. Finally in 2008 the Italian Supreme Court reinstated the conviction, but Denim Day has continued as a day of action to remind all of us that victim-blaming is still a huge problem across the world and can happen anywhere, even in a court!
