The Meaning Behind Denim Day
In Rome in 1992, a 45-year-old driving instructor allegedly raped an 18-year-old student during a lesson. While the alleged rapist was convicted and sentenced, the Italian Supreme Court overturned the conviction in 1998 because the victim wore tight jeans. It was argued that she must have helped her attacker remove her jeans, thus making the act consensual.
The ruling sparked widespread protest. The day after the decision, women in the Italian Parliament protested by wearing jeans. As a sign of support, the California Senate and Assembly followed suit. In time, Denim Day became an annual event. National Denim Day was supported by the 152 AW on 26 April 2017. Airmen were authorized by the TAG to wear denim, showing the TAG and Wing support for this very important event.
The Sexual Assault Response Coordinator (SARC) for the 152 AW offers victim advocacy and services. The SARC advocates for the client and only the client. The SARC is here to provide service referrals and reporting options. The client chooses the reporting option, if they choose to report, reporting is not required to obtain services.
There are two reporting options for Airmen, unrestricted (begins an investigation) and restricted (confidential, no investigation). Either option is available to all Airmen of the 152 AW. The client will be offered services, whether they choose to report or not. The SARC is here to support the mission of the 152 AW through awareness and education through sexual assault prevention and response. Thank you for all that you do High Rollers!
