Catholic School Tells Girls Provocative Outfits Responsible For Harassment

Last year, Dearborn Divine Child High School required students wear "modesty ponchos" over prom dresses that teachers believed to be too revealing. Now, students are reportedly protesting a lesson about rape and sexual harassment given by a Campus Life Minister who, according to students, said the girls' provocative outfits are "contributing to the boy's and men's bad behavior and that all the blame is on them."

A student recorded the minister saying, "Ladies, if you dress provocatively and leave absolutely nothing to the imagination, younger girls look and go, oh my gosh, she's got plenty of boys around her. Those younger guys go, oh, that's how you talk about women, that's how you look at women as an object."

About 40 girls protested by wearing paper target signs on their uniforms. They also hung posters reading "Instead of publicly shaming girls for dressing how they want, teach men not to over-sexualize women's bodies." The school punished students who did not comply with demands to remove the targets or take down the posters.
