Susan B. Anthony Barbie Doll Introduced To Celebrate American Women’s Right To Vote

Post date:



Women gained their constitutional right to vote back in 1920, and this year marks the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment. Susan B. Anthony Amendment was named after the driving force behind the woman that was responsible for campaigning and fighting for women’s right to vote.

Mattel, the company behind the barbie doll, has just unveiled Susan B. Anthony Barbie doll and it’s a part of a line of Inspiring Women Barbie dolls.

Antony once famously said:

“I never felt I could give up my life of freedom to become a man’s housekeeper. When I was young, if a girl married poor she became a housekeeper and a drudge. If she married wealthy, she became a pet and a doll.”

Although Barbie dolls were criticized in the past for propagating unrealistic body standards for young girls, things have changed and Mattel regularly releases new dolls that encourage women empowerment.

The toy company has created very inclusive and diverse collection of dolls, such as career-themed Barbies, the ‘Shero Dolls’, and the powerful ‘Inspiring Women Series’.

In a statement, the President & CEO of the Anthony Museum, Deborah L. Hughes, said that they’re delighted that the design team from Mattel reached out to them early in the project, demonstrated their interest in a doll and packaging that would reflect Susan B. Anthony’s life, and actually produced the doll.
