All the Ghostbusters detractors who are upset with the all-female cast will have something new to grumble about after star Melissa McCarthy released a photo of a large group of women working on the film.

McCarthy posted an Instagram with the hashtag #GirlPower, featuring women working on Ghostbusters both in front of the camera and behind the scenes, holding up paper with their job titles to show the diversity of the cast and crew.

 According to the signs, women are working across multiple departments on the film, including stunts, props, hair and makeup, and as a grip.

“When we stand together we are unstoppable,” McCarthy wrote. 

The film is slated for release July 16, 2016.
