Wonder Woman’s greatest power is inspiring little girls.

It’s official—Wonder Woman has surpassed all the testosterone-fueled action movies to become the number one movie at the U.S. box office this summer. And you know what’s even cooler? The only movie that has made more money for the rest of 2017 is Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, which stars another amazing female hero.

The very thought of all those strong, smart women standing up for themselves and kicking some butt—and then killing it at the box office—is enough to move legions of Wonder Woman’s fans to tears. That may or may not be the reason this little girl, in an awesome homemade WW costume, broke down when meeting Wonder Woman herself, Gal Gadot, at San Diego’s Comic Con. The scene of the Israeli actress (and mom to two girls) comforting the clearly overwhelmed child was so moving that it even gave Batman himself, Ben Affleck, all the feels from a few seats away.

With Wonder Woman and Belle proving that female heroes are not only super role models for girls, but have the power to soar to the billion-dollar-movie mark, we put together this list of other favorite fearless female heroes for girls ages 5 to 95.
