Photo: The New “Ghostbusters” Female Crew

Since the official announcement of the female-centric “Ghostbusters” reboot earlier this year, there’s been a notable online debate about the project. While much of the backlash is an understandable questioning the need or desire for a reboot of a beloved property like “Ghostbusters,” there has also been an amount of passionate vitriol that goes beyond sexist and into some quite nasty territory.

Today, the key four actresses of the film along with many of its female crew members give a big middle finger to the haters today with a great photo of themselves on the film’s set as part of Ellen DeGeneres’ #GirlPower social media movement which highlights strong women in the workplace. The photo also confirms rumors that Cecily Strong has joined the cast.

3 cheers to @theellenshow from all the remarkable women of #ghostbusters. When we stand together we are unstoppable! #girlpower
