Mattel just released a badass new doll in the likeness of Ibtihaj Muhammad, an Olympic fencer and the first American to compete in the Games while wearing a hijab. "There has never been a Barbie doll to wear a hijab before". Mattel posted. "Ibtihaj continues to inspire women and girls everywhere to break boundaries".
"I think it's revolutionary for Barbie to take a stand in this moment that we're in-and I would say, as a country, to have a doll wear a hijab and be the first of its kind", Muhammed told People.
Muhammad joins an impressive roster of other "Sheroes" including Ashley Graham, Zendaya, Kristin Chenoweth, Gabby Douglas, Emmy Rossum, Trisha Yearwood, Misty Copeland and Ava DuVernay and calls the opportunity "super humbling". I love that my relationship with Barbie has come full circle. But that wait is worth it for the all girls who will finally see themselves represented in Mattel's famous toy-just ask Muhammad. "By honoring her story, we hope this doll reminds them that they can be and do anything". The dolls aren't for sale, but with more than 79,000 Instagram followers, they clearly represent a market for Mattel. "Ibtihaj Muhammad has challenged every stereotype - which to me is the definition of a modern American woman", Glamour Editor-in-Chief, Cindi Leive, said in a statement. That's just another reason that she is a flawless choice for the Shero Barbie honor. Pittsburgh-based company Hello Hjiab, for instance, has made a business in producing and selling small hijabs that fit on Barbies and similar-sized dolls. "And that's what Mattel wants-they want women who are championing their differences", Graham said.
The company was created in recent years to promote "inclusion, tolerance and diversity through exposure" to Muslim fashion. The first is to make "playtime more inclusive", all the while "getting children accustomed to seeing headscarves in order to help fight stigma".
