Denim Day 2020
Michigan Tech Title IX invites you to proudly wear denim with a purpose on Wednesday, April 29 for International Denim Day to support survivors and educate our community about the forms of sexual violence.
Denim Day was founded after a 1999 Italian Supreme Court decision overturned a rape conviction because the victim wore tight jeans. Enraged by the verdict, within hours the women in the Italian Parliament launched into action and protested by wearing jeans on the steps of the Supreme Court.
Peace Over Violence, a nonprofit organization in Los Angeles, organized the country’s first Denim Day event in 1999. You can find more information about Denim Day here.
