Blue jeans are worn by millions of Americans every day, but citizens of Henry County will wear their denim on Thursday, April 23, 2015, for a special reason – to step forward and take a stand against rape.
Wearing jeans during Sexual Assault Awareness Month became an international symbol of protest against common attitudes about rape in 1999 when an Italian High Court overturned a rape conviction. The justices reasoned that since the victim wore very tight jeans, the man who was accused of raping her could not have removed her jeans by himself, so the victim must have willingly participated. Women in the Italian Legislature protested the decision by wearing jeans. As news of the decision spread, so did the protest. In April 1999 the state of California established the first Denim Day in the United States.
“Every year since 1999, people have made a social statement by wearing jeans to protest the myths that surround rape and sexual assault. There’s no excuse and never an invitation to rape."
“Rape can happen anywhere and at any time. It happens on dates and in marriage, in prison and under the cover of clergy. We must step forward and take a stand against rape."
If your agency/business is interested in participating in this very important cause, please contact Nancy Abbott, Executive Director, or Jeanine Snider, Domestic Violence Shelter Coordinator, at 660-885-6067 for a participation packet, posters and pins. All the money raised will be donated to FAITH'S Domestic Violence Shelter, so we can continue providing services to victims and their families.
