In this guest post, Veronika Walker explains the importance of Denim Day—and how the events that inspired Denim Day are not just a thing of the past.
In the 1990s in Italy, an 18-year-old was raped by her 45-year-old driving instructor. He drove to an isolated place, pulled her out of the car, wrestled her out of her jeans, and raped her. Later that night, she told her parents and they supported her decision to press charges. The assailant was convicted and sentenced to jail.
