Denim Day aims to create awareness around sexual assault. This event began in Italy during the early 1990's after a driving instructor sexually assaulted a student. After initially being convicted, the perpetrator appealed arguing consensual sex occurred. The Italian Supreme Court then granted the appeal saying that, because the victim was wearing such tight jeans, she would have had to help the perpetrator remove them. In light of Denim Day, VARP seeks to receive photos of those supporting the movement by wearing denim.
