Thank you to William Penn High School. We had a great time! It was most definitely a memorable night. pic.twitter.com/fuvUKk4I20

Wolf said she learned at the last moment that girls were required to wear dresses to Bishop McDevitt's prom. She went anyway but was thrown out. Wolf said she has worn a shirt and pants for all three years she has attended her school.
The school said the dress code was sent to parents three months earlier.
She didn't even see what I'm wearing ?, where in the dress code? Actually where in the bible? pic.twitter.com/wxbtFTyLGb

William Penn principal Brandon Carter said he invited Wolf because "we do embrace all".
