The flyers were placed inside Stanton College Preparatory School, Florida, earlier this week in the lead-up to the prom, happening this weekend.
According to the New York Times, the posters - placed in a number of locations around the school - feature photos of dresses with low necklines, leg slits and low-cut backs accompanied by the text: "Going to Stanton Prom? NO YOU’RE NOT.”
A fourth photo showed what was decidedly a satisfactory dress with “Going to Stanton Prom? YES YOU ARE. GOOD GIRL.”
Anger turned to action when the prep school's student body decided to change the theme of the scheduled ‘Tourist Day’ – part of Spirit Week where the school tries to increase morale with a number of different days and events – to ‘Women’s Day.’
Students backed the change, reacting en-mass by creating new attire for the updated theme, adding purple female symbols to t-shirts and wearing purple hijabs to recognise International Women's Day. Others also tweeted using the social media hashtag #SCPGOODGIRL.
The school has since taken down the posters after they were deemed by the district's governing body as being "not appropriate."
