Denim Day USA
Description: 

For the past 15 years, Peace Over Violence has run the Denim Day in L.A. and USA campaign on a Wednesday in April in honor of Sexual Violence Awareness Month. The campaign was originally triggered by a ruling by the Italian Supreme Court where a rape conviction was overturned because the justices felt that since the victim was wearing tight jeans she must have helped her rapist remove her jeans, thereby implying consent.  The following day, the women in the Italian Parliament came to work wearing jeans in solidarity with the victim. Peace Over Violence developed the Denim Day campaign in response to this case and the activism surrounding it. Since then, wearing jeans on Denim Day has become a symbol of protest against erroneous and destructive attitudes about sexual assault. In this rape prevention education campaign we ask community members, elected officials, businesses and students to make a social statement with their fashion by wearing jeans on this day as a visible means of protest against the misconceptions that surround sexual assault. This year’s Denim Day will be held on April 23, 2014 and will focus on educating the community at large on the legal definition of consent.

SlutWalk Toronto
Description: 

On April 3rd, 2011 the first SlutWalk event took place in Toronto, Canada. Inspired and influenced by powerful anti-violence efforts that came before us, SlutWalk aimed to fight against victim-blaming as a pervasive experience of sexual violence. It began in Toronto, Canada but quickly messages against victim-blaming continued to spread to cities and communities around the world. We all want to see an end to victim-blaming. We have seen amazing international collective action fighting against victim-blaming and fighting for respect and support of all survivors of sexual violence for years. In recognition of these efforts and many other ongoing actions, we marked April 3rd, 2011 as the first International Day Against Victim-Blaming.In one year the International Day Against Victim-Blaming has gained traction and although we wish this day was unnecessary, we’re thankful for all those working to end victim blaming today on the second International Day Against Victim-Blaming, April 3rd, 2013.
