Long gone are the days when Barbie was known for her dream houses and pink fashion. Now the iconic doll is becoming more body positive, inclusive, and inspirational. 

The brand released a line of Inspirational Women dolls that includes Katherine Johnson, Frida Kahlo, and Amelia Earhart. Now they've added two more historic figures to the mix: Rosa Parks and Sally Ride. The new dolls are available for pre-order from the Barbie Mattel website. 

Along with these historic women, there is also a line of women today nicknamed "Sheroes" that includes actors, artists, activists, and women with jobs in male-dominated industries. Barbie has always been inspirational in her ability to take on a multitude of jobs, but the brand is continuing to spread the important message of women empowerment. 

These women are exactly the kinds of role models young girls need.

The vast representation in the Sheroes collection is great progress for the brand. Women like Yara Shahidi, Naomi Osaka, Adwoa Aboah, Kristina Vogel, and Dipa Karmakar are just a few of the diverse role-model dolls. 

The brand's Instagram account wrote on this post, "Imagining she can be anything is just the beginning. Actually seeing that she can makes all the difference. Meet the latest Barbie Role Models — all extraordinary women we've honored with a one-of-a-kind doll in their likeness." 

Of course, sometimes it's nice to see representation in everyday dolls, too, and not just celebrities. 

Having a celebrity role model to look up to is great, but having a doll that looks like you is necessary. Growing up, what little girl or boy wouldn't want to play with the doll that looks like them, and thankfully Barbie took that message to heart. Now there is an entire line of diverse body types, abilities, genders, and hair types for people to see themselves in, and the collection is only growing. 

"Over the years, the #Barbie #Fashionistas line has evolved to be more reflective of the world girls see around them. We’re excited to expand our offerings as the most diverse and inclusive doll line in the world. Shop the new Fashionistas this Fall!" the caption reads.
