Mattel Reveals First Ever Hijab Wearing Barbie-blogged by @thereal__bee ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ As part of Mattel’s “Shero” program, Barbie has just released a new hijab-wearing doll. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ The doll is inspired by American-Muslim Olympic fencer, Ibtihaj Muhammad, who made history as the first American athlete to compete in the Olympics with a hijab. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ “The Barbie Shero Program recognizes women who break boundaries to inspire the next generation of girls and I am so excited to join this incredible group of women,” Muhammad said in a post on Instagram. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ “I’m proud to know that little girls everywhere can now play with a Barbie who chooses to wear hijab! This is a childhood dream come true.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ The doll was presented Monday by Glamour magazine at the Women of the Year summit in New York City. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ “Ibtihaj Muhammad has challenged every stereotype — which to me is the definition of a modern American woman,” Glamour’s Editor-in-Chief, Cindi Leive, said in a statement. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ “Barbie is celebrating Ibtihaj not only for her accolades as an Olympian, but for embracing what makes her stand out,” Barbie’s vice-president of marketing, Sejal Shah Miller, said in a statement. “Ibtihaj is an inspiration to countless girls who never saw themselves represented. By honoring her story, we hope this doll reminds them that they can be and do anything.”
