Our Safe Place in Mexico hosted a lunch today [Wednesday] in honor of Denim Day and Sexual Assault Awareness Month.
The event was moved inside Fairytale Events and Webber Photography when it began to rain. It is held annually on the lawn of the Audrain County Courthouse.
Denim Day grew out of a 1998 Italian Supreme Court decision that overturned a rape conviction because the victim wore tight jeans.
The Chief Judge argued that because the victim’s jeans were so tight, she would have had to help him remove them, making the act consensual.
