Top 10 Feminist Halloween Costumes

With Halloween just around the corner, the question is popping up more and more: What will I be for Halloween? Never fear, ladies, here are the top 10 feminist Halloween costumes in 2017!

1. Wonder Woman

I'm sure I'll see a million Wonder Women this Halloween, but I know I won't get sick of it. Wonder Woman took the mainstream media by storm after the movie was released earlier this year, and she's the feminist icon we deserve.

2. Ruth Bader Ginsburg

AKA the Notorious RBG. Currently serving on the U.S. Supreme Court, RBG is known for her scathing dissents and for never beating around the bush.

3. Leslie Knope

Who doesn't want to be the tireless leader of Pawnee's Parks & Recreation department who later becomes (*SPOILER ALERT*) the governor of Indiana?

4. A flapper from the Roaring Twenties

The 1920s were a time where women were finally starting to be liberated from the gender roles that confined them, and the flapper look is a symbol of that time period. (Me? I'm going as Velma Kelly.)

5. Ariel Moore (from Footloose)

(Pardon the language but this is one of the coolest parts of the movie tbh.) This is a slightly unconventional costume, but could work with some red cowboy boots and 80s hair. Ariel Moore, with Ren MacCormick, stood up to her father and the whole town and organized a senior dance at Bomont High (honestly, if you haven't seen Footloose by now, I can't explain it to you - just go watch it).

6. The Schuyler Sisters (werk)

Angelica, Eliza, AND PEGGY. Who doesn't wanna spit fire at their local Halloween party?

7. Rosie the Riveter

Another classic option. The face of the women of World War II, Rosie is a timeless Halloween costume and reminder that we can do it!

8. Hillary Clinton

Love her or hate her, Hillary running for office and getting so close to winning was a huge step for women everywhere. And she's easily recognizable - who doesn't love pantsuits?

9. Frida Kahlo

"At the end of the day, we can endure much more than we think we can." A Mexican painter, Frida Kahlo has long been a symbol of the feminist movement.

10. Beyoncé

Because it's Bey.

The Heart Wants what the Heart Wants
Where to start...... Let me start with the cliche that life throws us curveballs and what we do with it is what counts.

One day he walked into my life. UNEXPECTED! And one day he walked out!

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

No one prepares you for the honeymoon phase wearing off

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

Let's start off with the simple fact that God made everyone differently. That statement could not be more evident. We try to embrace our differences and set ourselves apart from the rest of the world. What that doesn't prepare us for is when we yearn for a characteristic of someone else. For example, have you ever met someone who can experience this great heart ache and hardly shed a tear? This person just had their heart ripped out and they find a way to carry themselves through it with great composure. Well, not all of us have that desirable trait. Some of us wear our hearts on our wet sleeves. When a person has their heart on their sleeve, it can be viewed as a good thing, that the individual isn't shallow. However,
