There will probably never be a Halloween that doesn't include little girls dressed up as princesses, fairies, and fairy princesses. Some little girls love those kinds of costumes, and that's OK. But what about the little girls or their mothers who aren't into those typical "girl" costumes? How about some costumes that celebrate enpowered females? We're happy to report, there are plenty to choose from. Not to worry if you can't come up with any off the top of your head because we've got some great, empowering female Halloween costume ideas to share with you.

The powerful female costume ideas that we've come up with are meant to celebrate the totality of feminine power. Does that mean that we think princess, fairies, and fairy princesses can't be powerful? No, of course not. But it does mean that we think mothers and daughters deserve more choices.

Honestly, the truth is that there are no "girl" or "boy" Halloween costumes. There are just costumes. On this occasion, we decided to focus on empowering female costumes because we want to raise our daughters to be empowered women. Many of our costume ideas are inspired by actual women who have proven themselves to be powerful. We also have fictional, mythical, and professional options for you and your little ones to consider. Whatever you choose to dress up as, more power to you!

Who doesn't like firefighters?

While more women are choosing careers as firefighters, they make up [less than 10 percent of the U.S. fire service]( Is that because women don't make for good firefighters. Nope, it's because for so long only little boys have been encouraged to dream of being firefighters.

Frida Kahlo is kind of a no-brainer.

The Mexican artist known for her many self-portraits is a constant source of inspiration for so many. She was 47 years old when she died in 1954, but as the years pass, her legacy only continues to grow. Putting together a [Frida Kahlo costume]( for your or your daughter is pretty easy, since her crown of flowers and unibrow are so iconic and recognizable.

Ellen Ochoa was the first Latina to go to space.

In 1993, Ellen Ochoa became the first Latina to go to space. She was part of the space shuttle Discovery mission. You or your little one could dress up as an astronaut, or if you want to pay tribute to Ochoa, you could add a name tag to your costume with her name on it.

Or what about a rocket scientist?

Let's get our daughters excited about careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). A [rocket scientist costume]( could  be accessorized with a rocket. Maybe your daughter could dress as the rocket scientist, and you could go as a rocket.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg joined the Supreme Court in 1993.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg was one of only four women who have served on the Supreme Court of the United States. She served in the Supreme Court from 1993 until she died, in 2020. You could dress up as her or Sonia Sotomayor, the first Latina Supreme Court justice, or a judge in general.

Suffragettes fought to get the vote.

It's important to teach our children history so that history does not repeat itself. If it weren't for suffragettes in the United States fighting for women's right to vote, the 19th Amendment granting women the right to vote would not have been ratified on August 18, 1920.

Rosie the Riveter helped recruit women into the workforce during World War II.

The American workforce was in dire need of workers during World War II because so many men were enlisted. Women were inspired and encouraged by images of Rosie the Riveter to take jobs that were previously not even open to them.

Adelitas fought in the Mexican Revolution.

Adelitas were soldaderas who fought alongside the men during the Mexican Revolution. Soldaderas existed before the Mexican Revolution, but their numbers swelled during the revolution.

She's a journalist, social activist, editor, and general tough lady who has been fighting for women's rights pretty much ever since she came out of the womb in 1934. To dress up like her, you could channel one of her iconic looks with the long hair, oversized sunglasses, low-slung jeans, and belt.

Joan of Arc led the French army to victory.

Joan of Arc had no military training when she somehow convinced Prince Charles of Valois, who later [became King Charles VII,]( to let her lead the French army against the English at the city of Orléans. In 1431, she was burned at the stake when she was 19 years old after being tried for witchcraft and heresy.

Megan Rapinoe is more than an amazing soccer player.

She was the co-captain of the US women's national soccer team that won the Women's World Cup in France, and she uses her platform to be a social activist. To dress up like her, grab one of her jerseys and maybe a short-haired wig in a fun color.

Cleopatra wasn't just beautiful, she was an incredibly smart woman.

She spoke about a dozen languages and was highly educated. Born some time around 70 BC, she ruled Egypt as a coregent for close to three decades.

Laurie Hernandez is a two-time Olympic medalist.

As part of the 2016 US Olympic Gymnastics team, she won an individual silver medal and a team gold medal. Oh, and not for nothing, she also won *Dancing With the Stars* in 2016.

The Statue of Liberty was a gift from France.

She was dedicated on October 28, 1886, and is a symbol of freedom and democracy. Considering what is going on politically in this country, Lady Liberty is a great reminder of the ideals that we should strive to live up to.

Danica Patrick is the first and only woman thus far to win an IndyCar race.

Danica Patrick never strived to be a fast female driver. She says:

"I was brought up to be the fastest driver, not the fastest girl. That's how I've always approached my racing career. I've been lucky enough to make history and be the first woman to do many things. We have a lot more history to make and we are excited to do it.”

Paging Dr. (insert the name of your little girl here)!

Hopefully, we're at a point where everyone is aware that being a great doctor has nothing to do with your gender. Still, it can't hurt to reinforce the point.

Wonder Woman was a princess.

Before Wonder Woman was Wonder Woman, she was Princess Diana of Themyscira. But she was never the kind of princess who needed rescuing, and that's why we love her so much. Find this [costume on Amazon](
