Denim Day

This day was set aside in rememberance and support of sexual assault victims.  In Italy a few years ago a judge ruled the perpetrator in a sexual assault innocent.  He stated that the young woman sexually assualted by her drivers education teacher was not assaulted because her jeans were tight and she would have had to help the rapist get them off.  The ruling caused an uproar in Italy and the people demonstrated by wearing jeans on a certain day.  This public outcry was first taken up in California and has since spread throughout the United States.  Please check with your employers and ask for their support by allowing employees to wear jeans that day. 

WEAR THOSE JEANS PLEASE!!!
