AB 939, Denim Day Act of 2021, fulfills the promise of Denim Day by removing an existing provision of law that allows the manner in which a survivor was dressed to be admitted as evidence of consent in a criminal case involving sexual assault and thus makes it clear that clothes can never provide consent.
