Denim Day 2013 T-Shirt Photo

"In Italy in the 1990s an 18 year old girl is forcefully raped by her married 45 year old driving instructor. He threatens her life if she tells and makes her drive the car home. Later that night she tells her parents and they support her in pressing charges against the man. The perpetrator gets arrested and is prosecuted. He is convicted of rape and sentenced to jail. He appeals the sentence. The case makes it’s all the way to the Italian Supreme Court. Within a matter of days the case against the driving instructor is overturned, dismissed, and the perpetrator released. In a statement by the Chief Judge, he argued, “because the victim wore very, very tight jeans, she had to help him remove them, and by removing the jeans it was no longer rape but consensual sex.” Enraged by the verdict, within a matter of hours the women in the Italian Parliament launched into immediate action and protested by wearing jeans to work. This call to action motivated and emboldened the California Senate and Assembly to do the same, which in turn spread to Patricia Giggans, Executive Director of Peace Over Violence, and Denim Day in LA was born. The first Denim Day in LA was in April 1999, and has continued every year since. We, as an agency and concerned citizens, support this cause every year and work to prevent violence in our communities. CustomInk made it possible for us to promote our cause give away 100 t-shirts in our community of Elizabethtown, Kentucky."
