Mattel has been making extensive efforts to create new Barbie dolls that depict female role models. In time for Women’s History Month this March, Mattel released a line of 14 Barbies that include historical figures like pilot Amelia Earhart and modern-day achievers like snowboarder Chloe Kim.

The dolls honor women who left their mark in history. This group includes cultural icons, academics and activists from all over the world. For example, one of the dolls is NASA mathematician Katherine Johnson, who made significant contributions to computer science. Included with the dolls are educational facts and information so children can read all about the women who inspired them.

This release is an indication that brands will continue to create more toys that encourage girls to dream big and beyond traditional gender roles.
