Barbie Have Released a Range of Dolls Inspired by Empowering Women

Life in plastic is no longer fantastic, the age of bleached blonde, unrealistic body proportioned Barbies are over and now dawns the time of female role models and strong independent who relish in their versatile looks and shapes.


Barbie have released 17 new dolls, all inspired by empowering women who have broken the barriers of stereotypes and made history - We couldn’t be happier!



In aid of this year’s International Women’s day, the new range was launched containing some of the most inspiring names in history.

 Frida Kahlo, Artist


Amelia Earhart, Aviation Pioneer


Martyna Wojciechowska, Journalist


Hélène Darroze, World-Renowned Chef


Ashley Graham, Model and Body Activist


Patty Jenkins, Filmmaker


Katherine Johnson, NASA Mathematician and Physicist


Yuan Yuan Tan, Prima Ballerina


Sara Gama, Soccer Player


Leyla Piedayesh, Designer and Entrepreneur

Chloe Kim, Snowboarding Champion


Gabby Douglas, Gymnastics Champion


Ava Duvernay, Film Director

In addition to these 17 dolls, Barbie have also teamed up with Virgin to create 3 more dolls inspired by aviation.


To encourage young girls to pursue a career in STEM (Science/Technology/Engineering/Mathematics), the doll manufacturing company have designed a line of female pilots, flight attendants and engineers.


Considering back in 1959 Barbie was developed for young girls to have choices, it looks like the Barbie world is finally giving young girls the opportunity to aspire to be like their dolls in the correct way!
