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

 

Ibtihaj Muhammad, Fencing Champion

 

Bindi Irwin, Conservationist

 

Xiaotong Guan, Actress and Philanthropist

 

Chloe Kim, Snowboarding Champion

 

Gabby Douglas, Gymnastics Champion

 

Ava Duvernay, Film Director

 

Hui Ruoqi, Volleyball Champion

 

Nicola Adams Obe, Boxing Champion

 

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!
