“Girls have always been able to play out different roles and careers with Barbie and we are thrilled to shine a light on real-life role models to remind them that they can be anything,” senior vice president and general manager of Barbie, Lisa McKnight, said in a news release. A spokeswoman for Mattel has also confirmed that the lineup is set to grow with the release of new dolls.
Every doll comes with information that reveals how each woman has shaped our society. These dolls are based on various role models from different time periods, for example, the first woman to fly across the Atlantic Ocean Amelia Earhart and the Mexican artist Frida Kahlo.
