The Hunting Ground is a documentary film about the widespread incidence of sexual assault on college campuses in the United States and the failure of college administrations to deal with it adequately, including attempts to suppress data.
Wear jeans to raise awareness about sexual assault and raise money for the cause. Why jeans? Denim day began after a ruling by the Italian Supreme Court where a rape conviction was overturned because the justices felt that since the victim was wearing tight jeans she must have helped the person who raped her remove her jeans, thereby implying consent. The following day, the women in the Italian Parliament came to work wearing jeans in solidarity with the victim.
Ask everyone at your office/organization to wear jeans and donate to the YWCA’s Sexual Assault Survivors Program.
