A Catholic high school in Dearborn is under fire after a minister reportedly told female students to dress more conservatively during a lesson on sexual harrassment.

According to the Free Press:

The minister told students that girls are sometimes to blame for unwanted attention because of the way they dress.

Afterward, about 40 girls protested the lesson by wearing paper targets on their uniforms and put up posters that read: “Instead of publicly shaming girls for dressing how they want, teach men not to over-sexualize women’s bodies.”

The school, Divine Child, last year sparked controversy for a plan to have girls wear "modesty ponchos" at prom.

School officials did not apologize for the lesson in a statement to the paper:

"While we are confident in the message and value of the program, this input from our community has and will help us continue to improve our delivery of this important information to our students."
