Staff celebrates denim day

Beyond Abuse staff wore denim in support of Denim Day as a part of Sexual Assault Awareness Month. Denim Day is a campaign aimed at protesting flawed and biased attitudes concerning sexual violence. It was launched after the enrage that ensued an overturned rape conviction in Italy due to the justices’ claim that since the victim was wearing tight jeans, she must have helped the perpetrator remove her jeans, thereby implying consent. The following day, women in the Italian Parliament came to work wearing jeans in solidarity with the victim. We at Beyond Abuse also stand in solidarity with all sexual assault victims.
