11 Feminist Halloween Costumes You Don't Need Cleavage To Feel Sexy In

If you’re looking for the most scandalous outfits to wear this Halloween, this may not be it.

If you're a socially conscious f eminist, you'll know sexy shouldn't be defined by anything other than what you make of it.

However, when most people type in "sexy Halloween costumes" into their search engine, they might be looking for tight bodysuits or something that shows a little more cleavage. Don’t get me wrong, I'm not knocking out bunny ears or mesh tights. However, it might be time to stretch what that definition means.

I've gathered a few costume ideas that are sure to make a statement this Halloween while representing some of the most iconic women of our time. So, here are the ten best Halloween costumes for forward-thinking women like us!

1. Rosie the Riveter

Who better to show that we are equal and can do a “man’s job” just as good (or better) than Rosie the Riveter? This outfit is bold and inexpensive. You may even have this in your closet!

2. Marilyn Monroe

"I am very definitely a woman and I enjoy it.”

More proof that you can be beautiful in pants or a dress. Embrace the beauty within.

3. Taylor Swift

“I don’t really think about things as guys versus girls. I never have. I was raised by parents who brought me up to think if you work as hard as guys, you can go far in life,” Taylor Swift said in an interview with The Daily Beast.

Enough said.

4. Hillary Clinton

President or not I’m still with her. Just like feminists and activists before her, she has paved the way for modern women to stand up for themselves and have a voice.

5. Susan B. Anthony

Susan B. Anthony proved any woman could turn her dreams into a reality. She helped remove limitations and showed women to be fearless. Fast forward 97 years and women can achieve even more than. Yes, we still have more to accomplish, but we’re definitely nearing the horizon!

6. Amelia Earhart

Not only was she an American aviator, she was also the first woman to ever fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean. Talk about goals. This Halloween, you can defy gender norms just like Amelia did.

7. Frida Kahlo

Surrealist painter Frida Kahlo explored the depths of her identity, culture, gender, class, love, and loss. Through her persona and her artwork, she defied feminine beauty and gender stereotypes in a time where women had few rights and were viewed as submissive. Who ever said you had to get your brows waxed anyway?

8. Birth Control

Hands off my birth control!

This might be sound a little kooky, but isn't that what Halloween is all about? This year, make it a point to express how you feel through your costume. Women need to stick together! So, let's dress up as birth control to remind the GOP we will not accept another restriction.

9. Wonder Woman

Adding Wonder Woman to our list was a no-brainer. She’s a crowd favorite, especially the way Gal Gadot represented her in the new movie.

Overall, Wonder Woman is a symbolic character that reminds us anyone can be a hero. The days when only little boys looked up to their favorite superhero are long gone. Now, kids and adults of any gender have a badass female superhero to fawn over.

10. Madonna

More than 30 years ago Madonna broke the barriers of what men wanted women to be. In a time where women were expected to follow certain rules, her attitude and bravery overcame those norms. Shoutout to "Hocus Pocus" for the inspo.

11. Rey from "Star Wars"

In "Star Wars: The Force Awakens," Han Solo's new protégé Rey is loaded with martial skills anyone would admire. Daisy Ridley plays the franchise's first female protagonist with a strong feminist persona. Rey refuses to be defined as "just a woman" and is definitely no damsel in distress. Instead, she is a fighter, survivor, and all around badass.

This Halloween, don't just be brave. Be Rey.

I Have A 4-Day Vacation After Studying To Death And I Have A Pretty Good Idea How It's Going To Go

It is fall break and I'm going home.

92

Hello friends, welcome to what we call the what do I do now phase. I am sitting in my room thinking of all the things I want to do after my midterm because midterms suck. Who's idea was it to even give out work during a four day weekend anyway?

I have thought about what I want to do and what I want to happen. I've been thinking about it a lot, and I've been envisioning exactly how this weekend will go. I've debated on where I should go and what I should do.

Here's my thought process for the weekend:

Midterms are over (technically) and it's finally time to take a break. I mean, I still have a paper due Friday, but I am trying to relax. Nothing says fall break like a paper right?

Fall Break is here and I am so excited, there is a lot I want to do within the short time of four days. I can name so many reasons why fall break is going to be the best four days of my life. For days isn't a long time, but I going to try and make it last for as long as I can.

I am looking forward to my grandma's cooking and home cooked meals in general. Don't get me wrong, the dining hall food is okay, I just miss eating the meals my family makes. It feels good to be able to eat my favorites at the table with my mom and the rest of my family.

I am looking forward to the sleep I could be getting too. For those who don't know, I am an insomniac. I have never been one to get the amount of sleep I should, hopefully, I catch up on it a little.

I am also looking forward to catching up on all the shows that are starting right now. Who knew that all my favorite shows started around Midterm season? I was studying for Film A&A; when I could've been watching Arrow or Riverdale.

Lucky for me, my family records all the shows I watch because they watch them too. In between the times, I am sleeping and eating I will have time to watch TV too. That sounds like a really good day for me, eat, watch TV, sleep; what more could a stressed college student ask for?

I'm excited for all the movies that just came out. I have so much to do an honestly so little time. I'm acting like I have all the time in the world, but let us not forget four days will always be four days. So if none of this happens I'll still enjoy the four days of sleep that I gain back.

Let's see if everything goes as planned, but knowing me….it probably won't. Have a nice Fall Break though!
