Wellness Wednesday: Denim Day

In 1992 the Italian Supreme Court overturned a rape conviction because the justices felt that the victim must have helped the rapist remove her tight jeans, thereby implying consent.

Wear denim as a protest against the misconceptions that surround sexual violence and share a selfie. Write messages of support to survivors on denim patches at the Student Union Plaza or download a digital patch to write a message.

Share your selfies and messages using the hashtags #SAAM and #CultureofRespect and tag us @volshelpvols on Instagram and Twitter.
