Barbie as a Role Model For Girls

Is Barbie a Good Career Role Model?

With over 125 careers and counting, Barbie is not your average woman. In fact, according to Mattel spokesperson Michelle Chodoni, Barbie's "been a trailblazer. She went to the moon before Neil Armstrong did. She ran for president before Hillary did."

Don't let her pink outfits fool you (even engineer Barbie doesn't shy away from pink). Barbie's girly clothing reflects the fact that she holds true to her identity while she's chasing after careers, Chodoni added.

What do you think — is Barbie is a good career role model for girls?

In a sense, she's a good role model because she lets little girls know that women can be anything they want to be. But on the other hand, girls need to know that they don't have to have a pink laptop and a color-coordinated doctor's bag in order to be successful as well.
