- Gender Wage Gap. It's super easy. Get sunglasses with money on them and black out one of your teeth. Here is the video. http://on.aol.com/video/5-feminist-halloween-costume-ideas-517980087#comment Go to 01:20
- Pussy Riot. All we have to do is just put on colorful ski masks with whatever we are wearing.
- Our favorite sheroes. Here are some ideas.
- A pro-choice group with various costumes.
- I printed out a map of Virginia and taped it to my shirt. Then, I used black eyeliner to create Wolf makeup, so I was Virginia Woolf.
- My feminist husband had bells around his neck, secured to hooks. Also a copy of bell hooks' Feminism is for Everybody.

Please let me know if any of you want to be nominated.
From Feminist Majority:
We're so excited to announce the launch of our first-ever Feminist You Should Know campaign.
We're on the lookout for amazing college feminists across the country. People who are dedicated and passionate about social justice. People who wear the word "feminist" proudly on their sleeves. People who are creating real change on their campuses and in their communities.
Does this sound like a friend? Does this sound like you? If so, you just might be a contender for our contest and could win a fabulous feminist prize package.
Nominations open today! Our National Campus Organizers will pick the finalists, and then our readers will pick the winners.
Check out all the details and nominate yourself or a friend for #FYSK2013.

In the real-life disaster that was the Republican Tea Party's government shutdown, "women and children first" was the order in which victims of the shutdown were selected.
For example, programs that support women and children with nutrition assistance were suspended. Women who suffered domestic violence couldn't access services funded by the Violence Against Women Act. The list goes on and on...
The majority of voters opposed the shutdown and especially its disruption of vital social and health services. And you may have felt helpless in the face of this outrageous governance-by-hostage-taking.
But there is something we can do. We can make sure this never happens again. It's time we seize the moment to ensure we're represented by a new, progressive majority in Congress in 2014! Please donate to NOW today and make sure women and their families do come first, reversing decades of attacks on our economic security, our access to reproductive health services, and even our ability to be protected against sexual assault and domestic violence.
Your donation today will help us identify pro-woman candidates, get the word out about what's at stake for women in next year's elections, register and educate voters on where the candidates stand, and fuel our grassroots organizing power in battleground states.
Together we can ensure that in next year's elections, "women and children first" won't mean we're the first ones to suffer — we'll be leading the way to a better future. I hope you'll show your support for this brighter future with a donation to NOW today.
