Ava DuVernay Now Has Her Own Barbie Doll
All too timely in the wake of our discussion yesterday, about sexism in the film industry, we’re excited to see that Mattel recently honored the likes of Ava DuVernay, along with Emmy Rossum and Lucky editor, Eva Chen, as “Sheroes”.
In honoring these women who are at the forefront of their industires in film, performance, and fashion, Mattel has created barbie dolls in their likeness. Although it’s a great idea to make positive role models into the toys young girls play with–and thus perhaps may look up to, these barbies won’t be hitting the market unfortunately.
But you can check out how great Ava’s beautiful braids look in the photos below.
