Denim Day 2016

April is Sexual Assault Awareness month and there are many ways to participate and bring attention to the issue of sexual assault. Denim Day is a national effort that stemmed from the gross injustice against  a rape victim in Italy whose perpetrator's verdict was overturned because it was deemed that her jeans were too tight so they could not have been forcible removed therefore making her a willing participant. This caused an international uproar thus creating Denim Day when people wear denim to show support for sexual assault victims and protest the perceptions that surround the topic of sexual assault . Kate Macek, marketing and development director for Women's Center-Youth & Family Services San Joaquin, shares information about Denim Day and the services that Women's Center-YFS provides.  For more information about Denim Day and Sexual Assault Awareness month visit, womenscenteryfs.org
