In the 90’s a teenage girl in Italy was raped by her driving instructor. The man was convicted, but his case went to the Supreme Court of Appeals in Rome. The court overturned the conviction, arguing that because the girl wore very tight jeans she must have had to help remove them, thereby giving consent to have sex.
The case made international headlines; the young woman’s jeans became a symbol of awareness that what someone wears is never an excuse for sexual assault.
