International Women's Day: Barbie Strikes With 19 Dolls of Real Inspiring Women

Look who decided to get on the right side of history after 58 years of gracing us with dolls that have unrealistic body, hair, and facial features expectations! It’s Barbie, y’all! After surveying 8,000 mothers that were concerned about their daughters playing with regular Barbies that in no way resemble reality in their shape or form, the company decided to release a brand new line of 19 Barbie dolls of real life inspiring women figures in celebration of International Women’s Day. 

“Girls have always been able to play out different roles and careers with Barbie and we are thrilled to shine a light on real-life role models to remind them that they can be anything,” said Lisa McKnight, senior vice president and general manager of Barbie, in a recent news release.

Each badass doll comes with its own catalogue to educate kids about why each of these women deserves to be celebrated by society and by the whole world. 

1. Chloe Kim, Snowboarding Champion 

2. Frida Kahlo, Fine Artist 

3. Patty Jenkins, Filmmaker 

4. Nicola Adams Obe, Boxing Champion 

5. Ibtihaj Muhammad, Fencing Champion

6. Bindi Irwin, Conservationist 

7. Amelia Earhart, Aviation Pioneer 

8. Hui Ruoqi, Volleyball Champion 

9. Ashley Graham, Model and Body Activist

10. Katherine Johnson, NASA Mathematician and Physicist 

 

11. Misty Copeland, Principal Ballerina 

12. Helene Darroze, World Renowned Chef 

13. Sara Gama, Soccer Player 

14. Martyna Wojciechowska, Journalist

15. Gabby Douglas, Gymnastics Champion

16. Xiaotong Guan, Actress and Philanthropist 

17. Ava Duvernay, Film Director 

18. Yuan Yuan Tan, Prima Ballerina

19. Leyla Piedayesh, Designer and Entrepreneur

My only complaint would be that a lot of these dolls need to be more accurate in regards to body shape. Some of these fantastic women have curves, while the dolls that represent them are so obviously skinny.

I know I’m an adult, but I would totally collect these!

Egypt will house Africa’s very first vertical forest in the New Administrative Capital, the forest will consist of three 30m by 30m cube-shaped apartment towers all covered in planted terraces.

According to a CNN report, the seven story-high buildings will be home for around 350 tress and 14 thousands shrubs of more than 100 species.

The vertical forest is designed by Italian architect Stefano Boeri, whom designs usually focus on including environmental implications in the hope of putting a limit to footprint. According to his website, the vertical forest scheme is a “project for the environmental survival of contemporary cities designed to promote the coexistence of architecture and nature in urban areas”.

The constructing of these three towers is set to be completed by 2023 and hopefully will be able to combat the side effects of pollution and help resolve the issue of climate change by covering the towers in greenery.

Stefano Boeri’s three cube-shaped vertical forest apartment blocks is a collaboration with Egyptian designer Shimaa Shalash, and also the Italian landscape architect Laura Gatti.

“There are many ways to make the city green, this vertical forest is a less expensive and faster way of dealing with climate change. The objective of the vertical forest is to limit pollution. These are small efforts, but they are very important. And making people plant trees is the best way to involve them.” Boeri said.
