YWCA staff members are joining together in support of sexual violence survivors by wearing denim on April 26th. Denim days originated from an Italian Supreme Court ruling that held a victim could not have been raped because her jeans were too tight. The ruling alleged that the victim must have helped the perpetrator take them off and thus the encounter was consensual.
Consider participating in your own denim day this month and standing in solidarity with victims of sexual assault! Additional information about the court case and Denim Days is available here.
