Klaus Barbie, and Other Dolls I'd Like to See

Description: Barbies and other dolls portray an initial message to young
girls that they have to look and act a certain way in order to be

-Because Barbies of other ethnicities and background only exists as
limited additions, or do not exist at all, making white the norm. (73)
-Girls want and try to actually be like Barbie in the way they look,
wanting whiteness, long hair, blue eyes, and soft traits. (73)
-Plastic Surgery often reflects the looks that Barbie has. (73)

Vision: Making dolls that are more real life and don't have restrictions
of body shape and race, relieving young girls of the pressure that exists
to look like today's dolls. (74)

- Make Barbies that incorporate women's independence and uniqueness such
as Bisexual Barbie, Harley Barbie, and Butch Barbie. (74-75)
