How likely is this?
- Barbie makes a doll honoring a real Hollywood woman of color.
- The woman isn’t a movie star. She’s a director – Ava Du Vernay.
- The doll sells out in 17 seconds.
The message here should be obvious, unless you’re so stuck in your white patriarchal blindness that you cannot see. Hello, Hollywood Pooh-Bahs, isn’t it time to see the obvious?
DuVernay shared her feelings about the Barbie with Vanity Fair.

Barbie as a reflection of culture…what could be more accurate! Barbie was on the cusp of every wave of change in our society. Glad you spotted this!
A Malala Barbie might be a good idea right now, too.
