A prom poster at a public high school in Wisconsin is causing some pretty big backlash from students who claim it's sexist.

The poster is billing the prom as a "night to protect her character," featuring the words honest, tidy, and classy.

Students say this is sex shaming and insulting to female students.

The principal says they were meant to "promote a positive prom experience" and not a night to forget.

The school has since taken the posters down.
