Are you wearing denim for Denim Day?

Denim Day grew out of a 1998 Italian Supreme Court decision that overturned a rape conviction because the victim wore tight jeans. The judges reasoned the victim’s tight jeans meant that she had to have helped her assailant remove them, implying consent. People all over the world were outraged, and wearing jeans became an international symbol of protest against erroneous and destructive attitudes and myths surrounding sexual assault.

CAE in the News

City officials sponsor self-defense course

Excerpt: In an effort to better prepare women who may find themselves in a unsafe situation, Quinn, Koslowitz and state Sen. Toby Stavisky (D-Flushing) have partnered with the Center for Anti-Violence Education to hold a free self-defense class.

“This is probably the third or fourth class we’ve held in Queens and as more and more reports of rape and attempted rape come out, we want to make sure girls and women know how to protect themselves, how to use their voice and how to do everything they can to stay safe,” Quinn said.

Safety Tips (while on the street)

  • Be aware of your surroundings – where you are, who’s around you, what’s available to use to protect yourself (an exit, object, etc).  Present an alert, confident manner.
  • If you are using headphones consider wear only one & turning the volume down.  If you are using your cell phone, let the person you are talking to know where you are: This also tells those around you that someone knows your location.  Because you will not be able to hear as well, be sure to keep your eyes alert and attentive.
  • Be aware of how your clothes, bags, etc. may help you or may hinder you in the case of an attack.  Make any changes that can help you stay safe.
  • Try not to carry your keys, ID and wallet in one place like a purse: If your purse is stolen, the perpetrator will know where you live and will be able to get into your home.
  • Keep important items (money, Metrocard, etc) in your front pockets.
  • If you think someone is following you, don’t lead them to your home or a secluded place.  Go to a place full of people with whom you feel safe or go into a store and let them know you are being followed.
