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!

Free Masks to be Distributed to Dustmen

Dustmen

Since the beginning of the Coronavirus outbreak, many people had been affected by repercussions of the virus. For instance, have you guys put into mind that there are dustmen still roaming the streets trying to help clean areas for us as well as trying to make a living for themselves?

These poor people’s job is to stay in the streets, in the open air, where it could be very easy for them to catch the virus due to the lack of care and protection they have been given.

Which is why Mahmoud Shaarawy, Egypt’s Local Development Minister, has stressed this morning on how much of a necessity it is to provide these dustmen as well as blue-collared workers with the essential protective gear such as masks and gloves to help contain spreading the Coronavirus and to help keep these workers safe.

A new set of safety instructions as well as a major protective plan that will be directed by our President Abdel Fattah el Sisi is set in motion to take place, added the Minister.

Companies and Contractors have been demanded by governors to apply serious safety precautions and most importantly the correct care requirements for fellow workers as well as trying to raise awareness for the coronavirus.

Shaarawy has also stressed on how crucial it is to follow up with both the contractors and companies to make sure they are implementing the precautionary measures they are forced to apply on the workers. Also, they need to follow up on sterilizing as well as purifying the work sites they are asked to work in on a daily basis in hopes of achieving maximum protection and safety for the workers.

Thankfully, President Sisi has been kind and gracious enough to order protective masks to be distributed amongst all dustmen, janitors, and workers in need of protection to help keep them safe, thus our entire country in good hands.

So far, 139 new cases of the Coronavirus have been found. As for the death toll, it was announced last night that 15 new deaths have occurred. Egypt’s Ministry of Health has broadcasted that the number of infected Egyptian citizens are up to 1,699 and the death rate to 118 people. On the bright side, 348 people have recovered so far after testing positive for the virus.

You can now have all of your questions regarding the novel coronavirus answered via Twitter, as Egypt’s Ministry of Health & Population has announced a partnership with Twitter to launch an awareness campaign that provides accurate information on the pandemic.

The campaign, called 19اسئلة_كوفيد#0020, will allow us to tweet our questions to the ministry’s official account (@MOHPEgypt) using the hashtag 19اسئلة_كوفيد#.

 

Questions will be answered every Tuesday by the ministry, spokesman Khaled Megahed said.

“The ministry joined Twitter in January to maintain an open channel of communication with citizens on the ministry’s latest health services,” Megahed said.

“Twitter’s expanded rules require people to remove tweets that include denial of health authority recommendations to decrease someone’s likelihood of exposure to COVID-19 with the intent to influence people into acting against recommended guidance,” he said.

Moreover, Twitter will be responsible of deleting any false or misleading information as not to spread fear or any misguidance to citizens.

“Protective measures which are known to be ineffective and are not applicable to the COVID-19 context, and denial of established scientific facts about transmission during the incubation period or transmission guidance from health authorities, among others,” Megahed explained.

Again, we’re very proud of all the strict measures taken by the government to ensure limiting and eventually ending the spread of the virus.
