A strong and longtime supporter of Sexual Violence Awareness Month, Sen. Holly Mitchell joins colleagues and others in urging like-minded people to observe Denim Day by wearing jeans. The annual 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.
