Barbie Adds Model Ashley Graham to Its Line of ‘Sheroes’

by Alisha Jackson

Model and activist Ashley Graham is the latest female hero to join Barbie’s ‘Sheroes’ doll line.

Unfortunately, like singer/actress Zendaya and gymnast Gabby Douglas’ dolls, Graham’s isn’t for sale. But neither was dancer Misty Copeland’s at first!

“(Graham) challenges the conversation around body norms, and we think that’s a really important message for girls,” Lisa McKnight, senior vice president for Mattel’s Barbie brand told USA Today.
