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!

Small talents’ art work make it to an exhibition in Galleria40’

Published

Laila Diab, a person driven by her passion for art and teaching, believes that art soothes the soul and for that; she dedicated her work life for art and talented students who aspire to one day be like her. She decided to start her own special business and teaches art at her home based studio with a limited number of students per class, the reason behind this is to give students her full attention and to not compromise the quality of her teaching.

On the 7th and 8th of December, Laila Diab held an exhibition in Galleria40’ to showcase the work of her students, no profit was intended and the expenses of holding such an event was fully covered by her. The main target audience was friends and family of her students, in attempt to acknowledge their hard work and praise their art. That must have surely given the students the glimpse of what it would be like to one day have their own exhibitions and guests, the intent behind the event left us overwhelmed with the amount of support a teacher can give to her students.

Laila also added, that she selectively choose students with talent and she tries to help develop their skills as well as identify their artistic identity, this happens when students gain full understating of their personality and they link it to their art.

“There are so many art studios in the countries, and that why I wanted to distinguish myself from them by maintaining a higher quality and give my full focus to the students; through teaching a minimal number.” Laila added.

I personally felt so moved seeing the amount of effort she had exerted for her students, with no funds whatsoever or sponsorship; she personally delivered all the paintings from her studio to the exhibition.

Khadija Mahmoud, one of Laila’s students expressed her love for art and how helpful her teacher is, she was surprised when told about the exhibition and felt really excited to see her work put up on the wall and showcased to an audience.

Her last comment is what inspired me personally the most: “I believe art should be taught differently, it’s all in the eye and the soul as they are connected. how you look at things and details, and how you feel. It’s not just colors and papers, it’s the language of the soul.”
