Barbie Launches Hijab-Wearing Doll, Inspired By Olympic Fencer

The doll is modeled after American-Muslim Olympic fencer, Ibtihaj Muhammad, who made history as the first American athlete to compete in the Olympics wearing a head scarf.


“Barbie is celebrating Ibtihaj not only for her accolades as an Olympian, but for embracing what makes her stand out,” Barbie’s vice-president of marketing, Sejal Shah Miller, said in a statement. “Ibtihaj is an inspiration to countless girls who never saw themselves represented. By honoring her story, we hope this doll reminds them that they can be and do anything.”
