Denim Day started in 1992 when the Italian Supreme Court overturned a rape conviction. They determined that because the victim, an 18 year old woman, was wearing jeans, she must have help her 45-year old driving instructor remove them, implying she gave consent on the sole basis that jeans are too tight to remove by force.

The next day, in an act of both protest and solidarity, the women of the Italian Parliament showed up wearing jeans.

This act inspired the California Senate and Assembly to do the same on the steps of the Capital in Sacramento.
