National Denim Day
Wednesday, April 26, 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
All UCOP staff is invited to wear denim on this day. The national Denim Day movement was triggered by a 1990s ruling in which the Italian Supreme Court overturned a rape conviction because the justices felt the victim’s jeans were tight and concluded she must have helped her rapist remove her jeans, thereby implying consent. Wearing jeans on Denim Day has become a symbol of protest against misconceptions around sexual assault. Learn more about this awareness event here.
Staff members are invited to be photographed in their denim to show their support for victims of sexual violence:
Date: Wednesday, April 26
