Teens Protested Their High School's Sexist Prom Dress Code And Won
"As students, we’ve been trying to progress, and I think the school system should catch up as well."
On Monday, these prom dress code flyers appeared on the walls of Stanton College Prep, a public high school in Jacksonville, Florida.
Lily Willingham, an 18-year-old senior at the high school, found out about the posters in a group text with some friends — and she was livid.
With tons of posters plastered around the school, knowledge of them — and outrage — quickly spread among the student body.
Also, the prom is on Saturday, and most students have already bought their dresses.
"When everyone else found out, they were all as equally angry as I was," she said.
By the end of the day, they'd all been ripped down. It is still not known who put them up.
