Parents Outraged Over Sexist Message On School Dance Flyer

In Fort Mill, South Carolina, a flyer for a high school dance left quite a few parents upset. The flyer, created by staff at Nation Ford High School, stated that the dance is semi-formal and asked that students “leave something to the imagination."

The flyer then quoted designer Edith Head, stating “Your dresses should be tight enough to show you're a woman and loose enough to show you're a lady."

Principal Jason Johns said, “There was some perception that it was targeted specifically towards our females and maybe it was seen to hurt folks’ feelings, but that was not the intent at all."

Parent Sarah Heins told WCNC “Inappropriate, sexual message -- on something distributed from the school. I was horrified. It targets the girls in the school nothing about boys. I thought, would something ever come home saying 'boys your pants should be tight enough to show you're a man? Everyone thought it was funny and an okay message to our girls."

The quote has been removed from the flyer and the school's website.
