Denim Day

This art activism display will feature denim jeans on the lawn with phrases such as "no means no, get it?" and "silence ≠ consent." Denim Day began as a response to the 1999 rape case in the Italian Supreme Court where the case was dismissed because the judge falsely assumed that the victim's jeans were too tight to be taken off forcefully so the victim must have willingly taken off her clothes herself. It is celebrated annually in April to protest against the victim blaming discourse that silences survivors and empower the survivors of UCLA.
