In honor of
#InternationalWomensDay, we are committed to shining a light on empowering female role models past and present in an effort to inspire more girls. Join the conversation by sharing your role models using #MoreRoleModels.
The “Inspiring Women” dolls come with educational information about the contributions each woman made to society.
One is Amelia Earhart, the first female aviator to fly across the Atlantic Ocean. Frida Kahlo, the renowned Mexican artist and activist, will be another.
Barbie will also honor Katherine Johnson, a pioneer in mathematics who broke barriers of race and gender. One of the characters in the hit movie “Hidden Figures,” Johnson was among a pool of women hired by NASA to work as human “computers” for the first US-manned flight into space.
