Bay Area's Own Gets a New Barbie Global Role Model Doll!

posted by Producer Jenna -

FINALLY!! Big applause to Mattel for finally creating a positive image Role Model Barbies.  These #RoleModel Barbies include Frida Kahlo, Amelia Earhart, Chole Kim, Nicola Adams, SF's own ballet dancer Yuan Yuan Tan and more! I love that by doing this kids are learning who these women are.  In the social media world kids forget who the real women heroes are and this will help keep their stories alive! 

What women would you want to see as a Role Model Barbie? Mattel is seeking suggestions for more inspiring women via the #MoreRoleModels hashtag on social media.

Super proud of Yuan Yuan Tan and the others for making the list!
