Michigan High School Has ‘Modesty Ponchos’ For Girls For Prom
In the case that they are dressed inappropriately, the school has another option.
Divine Child High School in Dearborn already has a pretty detailed dress code for their students for prom, which the students AND their parents are required to sign. But they're putting out an extra precautionary measure - modesty ponchos.
The ponchos are on display at the school with a sign that reads, "If your dress does not meet our Formal Dance Dress Requirements - no problem! We've got you covered - literally. This is our Modesty Poncho, which you'll be given at the door," and it ends with a smiley face.
Several students have already said that they're now worried about their dresses and are looking for new ones.
I understand that some dresses are inappropriate for prom, but the whole thing is so sexist. Boys never have these problems. Okay, that's my rant and I'm done.
