Denim Day at Clemson University

You might have noticed more jeans than usual today as you walked across Clemson campus. That’s because students, faculty, and staff are honoring Denim Day in conjunction with Clemson’s Sexual Assault Awareness Month.

As the graphic explains, Denim Day was created after a rape case was overturned on the basis11150596_10153163882881276_3512857193797806139_n that the woman’s jeans were too tight. Now, the Clemson campus wears jeans to combat the many myths that plague sexual assault understanding.

Clemson University Healthy Campus posted the graphic above and the photo to the right on its Facebook page. Although the official Denim Day is honored on April 29th, Megan R. Fallon, Interpersonal Violence Prevention Coordinator for the University, said that they wanted to have Denim Day before exams kicked in.

Participants used the hashtags #CUSAAM and #DenimDay to show their support.
