So you don't feel like dressing up like a sexy sea monkey or scantily clad nun? Good for you! Halloween is a time to be whatever you want, and even though there are so many “sexy” costume options out there it’s kind of ridiculous, (sexy slice of pizza or sexy lobster, anyone?), they definitely aren’t your only options. Not even close. Why not embrace the beauty of powerful, game-changing women with one of these awesome feminist Halloween costumes instead?

Some of the most remarkable women of the past century weren't waltzing around in skintight dresses and skimpy bikinis.

Here are 10 suggestions for feminist Halloween costumes for those of us who just don’t feel like dressing up as a sexy kitten this year. They’re really fun, really inspiring, and really easy to make. Now go get it, girl.
