7 Kickass Role Models That Are Better Than Barbie

For most girls our childhood was spent living in Barbie’s dream house: a land with unrealistic image standards and materialistic fascinations. We’re not saying Barbie is the devil or condemning you as a terrible feminist for playing with your dolls: the point is there were plenty of other female role models in your cartoons and childhood movies better worth emulating. Sorry Barbie but these are the childhood figures we should have been idolizing.
