Will sex sell this Halloween?

We sure hope not! Halloween, for girls and women, is an endless parade of sexualized outfits.

Nothing could be more representative than this Spongebob Squarepants mini-skirt and tiny top marketed to teenage girls:

Ready to stop this non-sense? Come on over to our SPARKwatch Facebook Event page and post any and all costumes that you think should be taken off the shelves. We'll send a message to the store, along with a photo of the costume, asking for it's prompt removal.
