International Women’s Day: Barbie Strikes With 19 Dolls of Real Inspiring Women



International Women's Day: Barbie Strikes With 19 Dolls of Real Inspiring Women

Look who decided to get on the right side of history after 58 years of gracing us with dolls that have unrealistic body, hair, and facial features expectations! It’s Barbie, y’all! After surveying 8,000 mothers that were concerned about their daughters playing with regular Barbies that in no way resemble reality in their shape or form, the company decided to release a brand new line of 19 Barbie dolls of real life inspiring women figures in celebration of International Women’s Day. 

“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,” said Lisa McKnight, senior vice president and general manager of Barbie, in a recent news release.

Each badass doll comes with its own catalogue to educate kids about why each of these women deserves to be celebrated by society and by the whole world. 

1. Chloe Kim, Snowboarding Champion 

2. Frida Kahlo, Fine Artist 

3. Patty Jenkins, Filmmaker 

4. Nicola Adams Obe, Boxing Champion 

5. Ibtihaj Muhammad, Fencing Champion

6. Bindi Irwin, Conservationist 

7. Amelia Earhart, Aviation Pioneer 

8. Hui Ruoqi, Volleyball Champion 

9. Ashley Graham, Model and Body Activist

10. Katherine Johnson, NASA Mathematician and Physicist 


11. Misty Copeland, Principal Ballerina 

12. Helene Darroze, World Renowned Chef 

13. Sara Gama, Soccer Player 

14. Martyna Wojciechowska, Journalist

15. Gabby Douglas, Gymnastics Champion

16. Xiaotong Guan, Actress and Philanthropist 

17. Ava Duvernay, Film Director 

18. Yuan Yuan Tan, Prima Ballerina

19. Leyla Piedayesh, Designer and Entrepreneur

My only complaint would be that a lot of these dolls need to be more accurate in regards to body shape. Some of these fantastic women have curves, while the dolls that represent them are so obviously skinny.

I know I’m an adult, but I would totally collect these!
