SAAM: Support Attire: Denim Day
April 17, 2016 - April 18, 2016
Sexual Assault Awareness Month at HUCARES begins with Monday, Support Attire: Denim Day, post a photo of your denim & share on FB/IG/Twitter an example of victim blaming with us @NMHUCARES. The official “Denim Day” was a result of the Italian Supreme stating that the particular victim in their case had to have contributed to her assault because she was wearing tight jeans; as such, if her denim jeans were removed it was because she assisted her perpetrator. NMHU-CARES invites everyone to wear their denim and identify victim blaming phrases you have heard in response to hearing of someone who was sexually assaulted.
