Sexual Assault Awareness Month - Denim Day

Wednesday, April 26, 2017 - 12:00pm to 3:00pm

Denim Day was first started in April 1999 after a Chief Judge in the Italian Supreme Court overturned a case arguing that because the victim wore very, very tight jeans, she had to help him remove them, and by removing the jeans it was no longer a rape case but consensual sex.  Women began to protest by wearing jeans to work.  The Safe Center will be displaying Denim Jeans which clients have used as a canvas to illustrate their journey and struggle as sexual assault survivors at this event.   Along with Denim display, there will be a screening of the documentary "Audrie and Daisy" and a discussion following.   This event is open to the public.
