Denim Day NYC 2020 Annual Rally, 4/29


Denim Day NYC 2020 Annual Rally:

Join our annual Denim Day rally at Foley Square to take a stand and end sexual assault and violence!

"Society teaches us 'Don't get raped' rather than 'Don't rape'"
(Hilary Beaumont)

Denim Day grew out of a case in which a rape conviction was overturned because the judge reasoned the victim’s tight jeans meant that she had to have helped her assailant remove them, implying consent. People were outraged all over the world and wearing jeans became an international symbol of protest against erroneous and destructive attitudes and myths surrounding sexual assault. Denim Day started in Los Angeles and has grown into an international movement. Denim Day NYC started in 2010 with a collaborative of three agencies and has grown to more than 40 agencies uniting to promote awareness around the issue of sexual assault.

No matter who your are
No matter where you work
No matter how you identify
No matter how you flirt
No matter what you wear
No matter whom you choose to love
No matter what you said before:
NO ONE has the right to touch you without your consent!
(NYC Stutwalk 2011)
