Twitter user Lily Willingham took to Twitter recently to share flyers of prom dress guidelines she spotted in the hallways of Stanton College Prep High School in Jacksonville, Florida.
They show examples of dresses that won't be allowed at the prom, and an example of a dress that is considered acceptable with the comment: "GOOD GIRL." Yes, it's as creepy as it sounds.
As you can imagine, Twitter users weren't happy about the display. The student body responded with the hashtag #scpgoodgirl, which quickly went viral and prompted responses from around the world.
Action News Jax has since reported that the school apologized for the photos and issues a statement:
"The display of prom dress photos pertaining to recommended attire at Stanton College Preparatory School is not an approved policy by the school or Duval County Public Schools. The displayed images were immediately removed by school leadership on Monday. Both students and staff have been informed this was not acceptable or appropriate guidance for prom dress attire.”
But that wasn't before the student body staged a protest over the photos. Some students showed up in purple and white shirts on Tuesday to show solidarity and support for women.
This isn't the first time that a school has got into trouble after telling female students what they should and shouldn't wear to prom. And sadly, it probably won't be the last.
