Denim Day at LSUS

May 02, 2017

Denim Day is an international movement held every year on April 26th to promote sexual assault awareness. Denim Day started in Italy in the 1990s following an upsetting rape conviction that was appealed based on the judge’s argument that “because the victim wore very, very tight jeans, she had to have helped him remove them, and by removing the jeans it is no longer rape but consensual sex.” For this year’s Denim Day, many LSUS students, faculty, and staff wore red shirts and jeans to promote awareness and show support for survivors of sexual assault. Several were able to gather together in front of the University Center for a group photo!
