22 Feminist Halloween Costumes To Bring Out The Wonder Woman In All Of Us

Make a political statement...or just have a damn good time.

Sure, Halloween costumes were traditionally meant to be scary. But when reality is so terrifying ― a racist, misogynist, serial liar might actually become president, after all ― it may be best to skip the ghosts and goblins and instead take the opportunity to honor one of the many brave and empowering women who help us get through these kind of trying times.

Whether it’s a politician or a superhero, your favorite fictional character or one of history’s most influential women, there’s a Halloween costume for every feminist. Here are 22 of our favorites:
