Women’s Center SAAM Events

Denim Days
When: April 3rd and 17th
Time: All day
Location: Lynn University
In 1992, an 18 year old female was raped in Italy by her driving instructor. The case was overturned by the High Court, which stated that, since she was wearing tight jeans, the rapist could not have done this by himself. The women of the Italian legislature protested by wearing jeans. Join the Lynn University community in participating in Denim Day to honor victims/ survivors of sexual assault by wearing denim for the day. Employees can pay $5 at Employee Services to wear jeans. Students are encouraged to participate as well.
