This week’s Badass Chick is slightly unconventional, but bear with me: it’s Barbie!
On Wednesday, Mattel unveiled its Vice President Barbie, who is joining President Barbie (they’ll be sold in packs of two, and in a variety of colors). While President Barbie isn’t really anything new, Vice President Barbie is, and I love that they’re showing a female/female presidential ticket! Most girls I know grew up loving to play with Barbies, and it’s fantastic that they’re finally stepping it up and showing little girls that they, too, can grow up to run this fine nation of ours!
Kudos to Mattel and Barbie – my Badass Chick of the Week!
(Hey, disclaimer: don’t bring your political crap here. This is not me endorsing Hillary Clinton (nor is this me telling you to vote for her, or for Donald Trump for that matter). This is just me being really happy that, if I’m lucky enough to have a daughter one day, she will grow up in a world where women running for President will hopefully be commonplace.)
