The National Women's History Museum is out with a new PSA featuring adorable young girls dressed up as famous women in history. And in a departure from her usual gothic-tinged fare, "Twilight" director Catherine Hardwicke is behind it.

Hardwicke came up with the idea for the spot, according to museum spokesperson Jan Du Plain, and she also contributed to the script. No vampires appear, but there are some pretty cute kids dressed as Rosa Parks and Amelia Earhart. Actress Alfre Woodard narrates.

Woodard and Hardwicke are Hollywood's latest to be tapped by the museum -- Meryl Streep is an honorary spokesperson, and Geena Davis, Kate Walsh and Amy Brenneman all serve as ambassadors.
