Description: 

On Thursday, April 23, the UMKC and Kansas City communities are invited to wear jeans in honor of Denim Day. Denim Day has been internationally celebrated since 1999 in protest of an Italian High Court ruling that overturned a rape conviction because the victim was wearing jeans. Enraged by the verdict, women of the Italian Legislature protested the decision by wearing jeans to work. As news of the decision spread, so did the protest. On April 23, university students, staff, and faculty members are invited to wear denim and participate in our Denim Day celebration.
