Who run the world? Girls!

To celebrate the launch of The Powerpuff Girls on Hulu, we’re shining the spotlight on Girls across the country. These are awesome young women doing rad things and inspiring others along the way, whether it's working in the fields of science and sports, or doing great things for their families and within their community.

Do you know any girls that fit the bill? Post their photo or a video of them on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter and tag it with . Then head to to share their story. Amazing girls will be featured and celebrated on the site, and they'll also be given the chance to win Powerpuff Girls prize bags.

One amazing girl is Taylor Denise Richardson, our first featured real-life Powerpuff Girl. Taylor is actively working to become the first African-American woman in space, and is improving the world as she goes.

Say hi to Taylor Denise Richardson! She's a seventh-grader at The Bolles School in Jacksonville, Florida who wants to grow up to be an astronaut. Along with all of Taylor's amazing accomplishments listed above, she's visited four NASA space Centers and attended US Space Camp, is a Student Space Ambassador for The Mars Generation, a Girl Scout, a Jacksonville Sister Cities Association Nelson Mandela Student Ambassador, and a member of Empowerment Resources' Journey into Womanhood and the Delores Barr Weaver Policy Center's See the Girl, two clubs that empower girls. Phew!

We all dreamed big and had great female role models growing up, whether it was Wonder Woman or Dana Scully, Sally Ride or Michelle Obama, Beyoncé or Lady Gaga, Malala Yousafzai or Emma Watson. We've all been inspired in some way by the women and girls who came before us.
