After being approached by Marie Claire South Africa to draw "what a feminist Barbie might look like," artist Colleen Clark came with the idea of drawing a line of dolls that were representative of not just one but many different types of women.

For her feminist Barbie illustrations, Colleen Clark was inspired by "the idea that feminism is as simple as accepting others and yourself unconditionally." To that end, Clark believed that a feminist Barbie line wouldn't just have one look but rather many that would be indicative of all the different body types, culture, and styles that are out there.

For quite some time now, the popular kids toy Barbie has been caught in the crosshairs by many women for the unhealthy body image the doll promotes to young girls. Collen Clarks feminist Barbie illustrations gives the popular doll a much more inclusive look.
