Wear jeans with a purpose. Make a social statement with your fashion statement. Taking place in all businesses and schools in Haywood County.
In 1999, the Italian High Court overturned a rape conviction because the 18 year old victim was wearing tight jeans at the time of the assault. The justices stated that the victim must have helped her attacker remove her jeans, from which they inferred consent. People all around the world were outraged. Wearing jeans on this anniversary became an international symbol of protest against erroneous and destructive attitudes about sexual violence.
