Denim Day

Wednesday, April 26, 2017
  11 a.m.–2 p.m.


Location: Bell Tower
  Parking Information

Category: Campus Activity

Description:

UCR students, faculty and staff:   The Women’s Resource Center is encouraging all UCR students, staff and faculty to challenge sexual assault myths and take a stand against sexual violence. The DENIM DAY Campaign was triggered by a 1998 Italian Supreme Court ruling where a rape conviction was overturned because of one such myth. The justices felt since the 18 year-old victim was wearing tight jeans, she must have helped her rapist remove her jeans, thereby implying consent.


Participate in the 2017 Denim Day Campaign by wearing jeans showing your support on Wednesday, April 26Stop by the WRC table at the Bell Tower from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. and get a free Denim Day button while supplies last. Show your denim using #DenimDayUCR on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram to spread the word.
