As I’ve gotten older, I’ve realized the importance for not only standing up for what I personally believe in and have been effected by, but for what other people may be effected by as well. Everyone has gone through something in their life — big or small, scary and happy — and it all shapes who we are and tells our story. The way that we get through it all is by having someone to experience it with and feel supported by.
Denim Day is the perfect example.
Denim Day is a day that Peace Over Violence has run on a Wednesday in April for 18 years in honor of Sexual Violence Awareness Month. It began as a solidarity movement among women to defend a victim who happened to be wearing tight jeans when she was taken advantage of. This is a day that I think is important to acknowledge and support, especially as a woman. I love that people are willing to defend those that have been effected by this personally and stand up and bring awareness to those that may have been sheltered to show that this does happen to people.
Guess partnered with Peace Over Violence this year and threw a denim day event in Santa Monica and although I could not attend I decided to stand up for the cause and wear their skinny jeans for the day as well.
What do you do to take action for the things you believe in? Remember, it can be something as small as wearing skinny jeans on a specific day.
