Celebrating inspirational women.

Barbie’s Sheroes line has expanded again, and this time one of our own has been immortalised in doll form.

Marking both the brand’s 60th anniversary and International Women’s Day, Barbie has created 20 new dolls honouring powerful women from around the world. Cleo founder and Aussie media trailblazer Ita Buttrose is among them, with Barbie recognising her as an “inspirational role model for aspiring women in business” who made a difference in society.

Tennis player Naomi Osaka and model and activist Adowa Aboah, among other female heroes from 18 countries, have also been celebrated.
