Sexual violence is primarily a crime of power and control.  It can impact all people, regardless of age, ethnicity, race or economic status.  Although younger women represent the majority of victims, not all young women are at equal risk for sexual violence.  Additionally, there are other populations with high rates of sexual victimization such as Native Americans, immigrants and the elderly that are often voiceless in society and marginalized from medical, legal and social services.  April has become quite widely recognized as the month for making a concerted effort to raise awareness of sexual assault.

Wear denim on Denim Day ~ April 27 ~ Peace Over Violence has run its Denim Day campaign on a Wednesday in April in honor of Sexual Violence Awareness Month. The campaign was originally triggered by a ruling by the Italian Supreme Court where a rape conviction was overturned because the justices felt that since the victim was wearing tight jeans she must have helped her rapist remove her jeans, thereby implying consent. The following day, the women in the Italian Parliament came to work wearing jeans in solidarity with the victim. Peace Over Violence developed the Denim Day campaign in response to this case and the activism surrounding it. Since then, wearing jeans on Denim Day has become a symbol of protest against erroneous and destructive attitudes about sexual assault. In this rape prevention education campaign we ask community members, elected officials, businesses and students to make a social statement with their fashion by wearing jeans on this day as a visible means of protest against the misconceptions that surround sexual assault.
