See These Girl Scouts Dressed Up as Female Icons for WHM

Women’s History Month just got a whole lot cuter!

Published March 14, 2017

The Girl Scouts of America are taking on women’s history with an adorable photo shoot that highlights our favorite sheros. The girls dressed up as real life Hidden Figures subjects Mary Jackson, Katherine G. Johnson and Dorothy Vaughan and more.

“Rather than just talking to girls about women from history, and those who are still making history today, we wanted to give girls a chance to walk in their shoes,” Andrea Bastiani Archibald, Ph.D., Chief Girl & Parent Expert at Girl Scouts of the USA told InStyle.

“At Girl Scouts, we celebrate the leadership and confidence of every girl, so it was incredible to see these 11 girls embody these icons’ achievements and ingenuity. Many of the women portrayed were also Girl Scouts, where they practiced skills that contributed to their success, such as leadership and perseverance.”

Scroll down to see some of the scouts who played dress up in honor of Women's History Month.
