Barbie is celebrating her 60th Anniversary this year, with a line of dolls which honor women whom they have deemed as role models.

Some of the women being honored with a doll are Yara Shahidi actress from Black’ish/Grown’ish tv show, Naomi Osaka-tennis player, Kelsea Ballerini-country singer, Adwoa Aboah-British/Ghanaian fashion model.

The collection will honor 20 women from 18 countries.

Barbie will close the “Dream Gap” by donating money to organizations which are aimed at “leveling the playing field for girls.”

[BARBIE MATTERS:  I do remember when my ginger mom surprised me at Christmas, with the first red-headed Barbie – her name was Kathy – and you could curl her crazy hair.  It meant the world, to see that she could be a little bit like me…  I will never forget it, as long as I live.  ~ Mo ]
