Denim Day got its start in 1998 when the Italian Supreme Court ruled that a victim’s claim she was raped was not valid because her jeans were so tight, she must have helped to take them off. Though the ruling was appealed in 2008, every year people wear denim jeans on Denim Day to bring awareness to myths surrounding sexual violence.
