Inspire the Youth
As part of its Inspiring Women Series, toy company, Mattel, released a Rosa Parks Barbie doll. This series presents strong female role models to children and focuses on important events in history. The Inspiring Women Series is also racially diverse which both brings in more customers to Mattel and sheds light on all American history, not just the white mainstream stories.
Joining the ranks of other women in the series: Katherine Johnson, Sally Ride, Frida Kahlo and Amelia Earhart, the Rosa Parks Barbie is in good company! This is definitely a great collector’s item and/or a perfect Christmas gift for a little brown girl!
