7 Feminist Costumes to Rock for Halloween

Say goodbye to your sexy mouse costume that you low-key hated, and say hello to these easy to put together costumes that really show how kick-ass us girls can be.


1. Elle Woods

Got accepted to Harvard Law just to get her boyfriend back but then realized that being a lawyer beats running back to old exes any day.


2. Beyoncé

This one is self-explanatory. All hail Queen Bey.


3. Leslie Knope

For this costume you’ll want to grab a nice pant suit and blonde wig. Leslie Knope has the biggest go-getter attitude and is ready to take on any challenge that comes her way. Can we just vote her into office instead?


4. Daenerys Targaryen

The life of Daenerys is one bad-ass moment after the other. Remember that time she came out of the flames unharmed after burning down the Dothraki temple? ~amazing~


5. Rosie the Riveter

This costume is one that is a classic and fairly easy to put together. She is a cultural icon representing the women who worked during WWII.


6. Peggy Olsen

Channel your inner 60’s chick with this one. Peggy Olsen has been telling guys “Hey, I can do this job too, and just as well!” since 1961.


7. Amelia Earhart

The first female to fly solo over the Atlantic Ocean. Independent AF.
