Both an election year and the 100th anniversary of the 19th amendment, 2020 is an important year for female voters, and to celebrate women voters, Mattel added the Susan B. Anthony Barbie to its Barbie Inspiring Women collection. The newest Barbie addition was designed to look resemble the suffragist and features round glasses and a 1800th-century dress that Susan was often pictured in.
Susan B. Anthony was pivotal to women gaining the right to vote and was a powerful influence on the feminist movement. Mattel, the makers of Barbie, is now dedicated to offering children empowering role models that embrace real women. The brand says, “Barbie is committed to shining a light on empowering role models past and present in an effort to inspire more girls.”
