Denim Day SAAM Committee Quad, Library Bridge, Schilletter Hall, The Wilbur O. and Ann Powers College of Business Denim Day is celebrated every year during SAAM to bring awareness to sexual assault and also help end the myths about clothes being the reason people are assaulted. Its history dates back to an Italian supreme court case where a conviction was overturned due to the perpetrator arguing since the victim was wearing tight jeans, they had to have helped remove them, thus making the act consensual. This sparked outrage and protests and led to the establishment of Denim Day.
