Did you know Halloween is a war on women? Well, it is. But it doesn’t have to be:

Women today have more roles available to them than ever before — doctors, lawyers, astronauts, CEOs, even Presidents — but when it comes to Halloween costumes, their options are far more limited.

Despite the tremendous progress women have made over the past fifty years, the costumes that are most readily available for our next generation of leaders do not reflect the times we live in: Boys have a seemingly endless choice of strong, powerful figures to choose from, while girls’ costumes are limited to characters like Snow White, Cinderella, and “Elegant Toddler Bride.”

Young girls (and their parents) need more choices this Halloween and, with that in mind, we reimagined Halloween costumes — MAKERS style. These costumes in the gallery above celebrate the heroic, groundbreaking women of MAKERS.

And what could be more heroic and groundbreaking than this?

What a time to be alive. Now if you’ll excuse us, we’re going to weep for the future.
