    Apr 30, 2014

    In 1997, an 18-year-old girl was picked up for her first day of drivers training by her 45-year-old instructor in Rome, Italy. The instructor then sexually assaulted the student. After threatening to kill her if she reported his actions to anyone, he abandoned the girl in an alley, leaving her to find her way home. That night, the victim told her parents about the sexual assault and they pressed charges against the instructor. The instructor was convicted and sentenced. A year later, the Italian Supreme Court overturned the sentence stating that because the young girl wore tight jeans, there was no way the instructor was able to take them off without the help of the victim, therefore, making the act consensual. The Italian Supreme Court decision and statement caused outrage and protest in Italy. Women of the Italian Parliament showed their support for the victim by wearing jeans to work. Since then, Denim Day has become an annual event for many around the world.
