Denim For HER Safety!!
Denim Day is started from the story of an Italian rape victim, whose rapist was set free by the Italian Supreme Court because she wore “very very tight jeans”, hence she must have helped him remove her jeans, and it can’t be classified as rape.

Tag 5 friends to do the same; using the hashtags #denim4hersafety #denimday so we can get your posts and be part of our campaign against sexual assault to air by the end of the month.
