Rome, Italy – 1999
A driving instructor, convicted of raping his 18 year old student 7 years prior, appeals his conviction. His defense … her jeans were so tight that she would have had to assist in removing them. His conviction was overturned! The Italian High Court released a statement that became known as the ‘jeans alibi”.
Thankfully, people weren’t having it. Enraged by the verdict, the women of the Italian Parliament showed up to work on the steps of the Supreme Court the next day, wearing denim. Fast forward to today, and Denim Day has become a global movement. It’s all about raising awareness of sexual assault, debunking harmful myths, and supporting survivors.
THRIVE! is a groundbreaking event that brings together the community to hear from survivors of sexual violence and experts in trauma to help shape a safer community for everyone. With a focus on driving positive change, THRIVE! is a uniquely positioned event in Duval, Nassau and Baker Counties to deliver an inspirational, impactful, and insightful morning for attendees.
