Mattel Has Created A Susan B. Anthony Doll As Part Of Its 'Barbie Inspiring Women' Series

The new Susan B. Anthony doll in the Barbie Inspiring Women Series is a true game changer for both kids and adults everywhere.

This inventive way to teach children history as they enjoy play was created by Mattel, and the doll is joined by a host of others based on inspiring women including Ella Fitzgerald, Billy Jean King, Frida Kahlo, and more.

Their dolls are raising many important conversations and lessons, and we're loving it.

She's a Barbie girl, fighting against a sexist world.


Susan B. Anthony inspired generations of women to fight for equality and gain access to voting.

This doll is poised, elegant, and refined in her long black dress and white frills, ornate brooch, and bold glasses.

Susan B. Anthony sure knew how to fight for justice in style.

'I declare to you that woman must not depend upon the protection of man, but must be taught to protect herself, and there I take my stand.'


With an important presidential election coming up, this may be the perfect choice for a new Barbie release, as Susan B. Anthony reminds women that anything is possible, even if there is adversity on the way.

She was arrested, persecuted, and belittled, but that didn't stop her, which is why she's undoubtedly an inspiring woman.

'There never will be complete equality until women themselves help to make laws and elect lawmakers.'


With voter suppression, sexism, racism, and many other inequities still happening when it comes to voting and beyond, the Susan B. Anthony Barbie is a great way to tackle difficult conversations for people of all ages.

It's important for people to not only appreciate Anthony's story, but also find ways that they can model their lives around her bravery.

'There shall never be another season of silence until women have the same rights men have on this green earth.'


It's important for children, especially little girls, to know that they are capable of greatness, and this Susan B. Anthony doll, along with Anthony's lived legacy, is a great start.

The Susan B. Anthony doll is currently available for pre-order.
