ASU Denim Day 2015

April 9
7 a.m. - 11:59 p.m.

Wear jeans as a visible sign of protest against the myths that still surround sexual assault. Be a part of this international event that started in 1998 after an Italian Supreme Court judge overturned a rape conviction because the victim wore tight jeans. Wearing jeans became an international symbol of protest against erroneous and destructive attitudes about sexual assault. For more information, visit ASU Wellness Denim Day.
