Denim Day

Milwaukee County Observes Denim Day

Denim Day was sparked in the 1990s after the Italian Supreme Court overturned a rape conviction because the victim was wearing tight jeans, and they felt she must have helped her attacker remove them so it was not rape but consensual sex.

We wear denim on April 24 and acknowledge Sexual Assault Awareness in April to open the dialogue about sexual violence, harassment and abuse and to stand up for those who have been affected. Learn more about Denim Day in Milwaukee and find resources for survivors at:
