Halloween is a tricky time for women. You want to dress up, but all of the shelves are lined with costumes that include the word "sexy" in the title or something ridiculous that's not even a costume, like a pair of suspenders and a tight t-shirt that says "I love nerds." When you want to couple up with your partner, it seems all that's left are costumes where you can dress as the bag of money to their bank robber costume or the sexy vixen next to their cowboy. But there are some feminist couples costumes out there and I promise, they are totally worth it for your Halloween shindig.
And, OK, I think I have to make sure and mention that of course you can be sexy and be a feminist. But it's tough to call a costume feminist when it was created so everyone could stare at your boobs and butt all night. I've never been one who was really into the sexy costumes and preferred to dress like a zombie bride, a creepy ventriloquist dummy, or a goblin. But if you don't want to be scary and you want to match your partner, what's left?
Well, you can try these 13 feminist couples costumes with your SO or BFF to fight the patriarchy. They all include strong, kick*ss women who have changed the world in one way or another and they are sure to inspire you beyond Halloween.
