Denim Day

Members of the Lauderhill Police Department wore jeans in support of the globally recognized Denim Day commemorating the international Sexual Assault Awareness Campaign. The history of Denim Day came about after a 1998 case where an 18 year old girl was raped in Italy by her driving instructor.  The driving instructor was arrested but appealed his case.  Within days of the appeal, the Italian Supreme Court overturned and dismissed the case.  In a statement the Chief Judge argued “because the victim wore very, very tight jeans, she had to help him remove them, and by removing the jeans it was no longer rape but consensual sex.” Women in the Italian Parliament were enraged and launched a protest by wearing jeans to work. Today more than 8 million people participate in Demin Day.

The Lauderhill Police Department stands in solidarity with others across the globe in observance of Denim Day to help promote awareness and stop sexual violence.
