Mattel has announced it is introducing three new dolls to its “Inspiring Women” line: Billie Jean King, Ella Fitzgerald and Florence Nightingale.

In 2018, Mattel debuted the “Inspiring Women Series,” a doll line dedicated to honoring modern and historical role models who paved the way for generations of girls. The series has paid tribute to Amelia Earhart, Katherine Johnson, Frida Kahlo,

Rosa Parks and Sally Ride

with dolls created in their likeness.

“Through our Barbie Inspiring Women Line, we are committed to shinning a light on historical women who have broken boundaries by introducing their stories to a new generation of girls through play to remind them they can be anything,” says Lisa McKnight, senior vice president, Barbie and global head of dolls. “By highlighting these women and their stories in the format of a doll, we celebrate the impact they’ve made on history and encourage girls to chase their own dreams.”

All dolls are fully articulated and include a stand and Certificate of

Authenticity. Dolls are available at John Lewis, Harrods and Selfridges in the U.K.
