    You Need To See These Girl Scouts Dressed As Empowering Women From History

    They're not just selling cookies, they're running the world.

    To celebrate Women’s History Month, Girl Scouts of the USA did something really cool — they styled girls from local New York troops as their favorite female role models.

    The stylizations were done by Toddlewood, an organization that transforms everyday kids into superstar celebrities, iconic figures and historic legends.

    Many of the girls' role models — like Mae Jemison, the first African-American woman to travel to space — revolutionized historically male-dominated industries like comedy, music, government, entrepreneurship, and the sciences.

    BuzzFeed spoke to Andrea Bastiani Archibald, Chief Girl & Parent Expert at Girl Scouts of the USA, who said, “Our biggest hope is that these girls, and in fact, every girl, can look in the mirror and clearly see her own potential—that she, too, can break barriers and change the world.”
