Little girls channel their inner Amy Schumer, Hillary Clinton and Misty Copeland in GoldieBlox ad

GoldieBlox, a company that creates construction toys for girls, has released a video that features little girls dressed up as some of this year’s top female role models.

In the short film, young YouTube stars like gamer RadioJH Audrey and Heaven King dress up as iconic women in the political, entertainment, sport and STEM fields, including Hillary Clinton, comedian Amy Schumer and ballerina Misty Copeland.

One little girl stars as Viola Davis, who made history earlier this year with her Emmy speech after being the first African-American woman to receive ‘Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series.’

Some of the women themselves even make an appearance, including NFL coach Jen Welter and American soccer player Abby Wambach.

The girls hold up signs that have hashtags like ‘#ILookLikeAComedian’ and “#ILookLikeAPresident’ written on them, re-enforcing the message that these women have been trailblazers in their respective fields and are paving the way for a better future.
