As a young girl I loved Barbie. I loved being able to dress her up, choosing her outfits with matching shoes and bag and even choosing between taking her Barbie Jeep or the Barbie Porsche for her hot date with Ken. While there is a lot of controversy about Barbie especially her unrealistic body shape and measurements, I see Barbie as a modern Wonder Woman. Barbie is a role model for many young girls around the world and deservingly so. She is an astronaut, an American president candidate, a world cup soccer player, a prima ballerina, a doctor and much more. While I know that Barbie is a fictional character she inspires young girls to dream big, to believe that they can be anything they want to be and look good doing it! Yes, she is a sex symbol and yes if she was a real person she would be anorexic but she is an amazing modern Wonder Woman.
