Every girl has loved playing with Barbie Dolls when they were kids. From dressing them up to playing house, we’ve done it all. Barbie has basically shaped our childhood with aspirationally beautiful dolls. But on International Women’s Day this year, they’ve taken it up a notch higher by introducing their new collection based on historic women of all time.
With 86% of US moms worried about the type of role models their daughters are exposed to, we are committed to shining a light on empowering female role models in an effort to inspire more girls. Join us by sharing your role models using #MoreRoleModels. #IWD2018 #HélèneDarroze #NicolaAdamsObe #ChloeKim #FridaKahlo #IbtihajMuhammad #KatherineJohnson #GabbyDouglas
They’ve now become a voice for women’s empowerment after being accused of promoting unrealistic expectations of beauty for young girls. From their collections inspired by women from different walks of life, to their movie-themed dolls, they have done everything.

Mattel ran a survey of 8,000 women and concluded that 86% of them are worried about the kind of role models their daughters are exposed to. This got them to inspire the world with this series that comes with information about these women and their contributions to the world.
Such examples are:
Amelia Earhart: The first female aviator to fly across the Atlantic Ocean
Frida Kahlo: The renowned Mexican artist
Katherine Johnson: A pioneer in mathematics who broke racial barriers
All these women are still the epitome of pride for all the women in the world.
They are also launching 14 new dolls in their collection called ‘Sheroes‘. These will be a tribute to real women who have inspired the world with their work.
My own Nicola Adams Barbie is MAJOR!! Love how @Barbie captured all of the details like my gloves and boxing outfit! More importantly, love how Barbie is encouraging people to share #MoreRoleModels so we can inspire a new generation of girls! #MoreRoleModels @BarbieStyle #Sheroes #BoxerBarbie#boxer#InternationalWomensDay #Ad#boxeo#fitnessgirl#lgbt#fitnessmotivation#fitnessmodel#fitness#gym#doll#muscles
