In 1992, an 18-year-old girl was assaulted by her 45-year-old driving instructor. Seven years after her reporting, the case made it to the Italian High Court, and it was overturned. The court argued that because the survivor wore such tight jeans, she must have helped him remove them, meaning she consented. This argument became known as the "jeans alibi."
The women of the Italian Parliament were enraged by this verdict and protested by wearing jeans to work. As a result, Denim Day is now observed worldwide, with thousands wearing denim each year as a sign of solidarity.
