There is now a hijab-wearing Barbie for the first time ever


Muhammad joins an impressive roster of other "Sheroes" including Ashley Graham, Zendaya, Kristin Chenoweth, Gabby Douglas, Emmy Rossum, Trisha Yearwood, Misty Copeland and Ava DuVernay and calls the opportunity "super humbling". In 2016, Barbie rolled out tall, petite and curvy versions of the dolls.

The New Jersey native received the Barbie Shero doll in her likeness at the Glamour Women of the Year LIVE Summit in Brooklyn, New York.

Her doll will be available for sale in the fall of 2018. Now, the brand is taking another step forward with a new doll that honors Olympic fencer Ibtihaj Muhammad, complete with a standout accessory: her hijab. "I don't think there's anything wrong with little girls wanting to wear makeup or role-play with their dolls-and also for their dolls to be badass sportswoman on the fencing strip, in hijab". And now she has her very own Barbie - the first to ever wear a hijab in the brand's 58-year history. Miller continued by saying that "Ibtihaj is an inspiration to countless girls who never saw themselves represented", and continued by saying that Barbie is proud to be working with the Olympian.

Ultimately, Muhammad was a flawless choice for Mattel to immortalize in their iconic doll for this year's Shero lineup. That's just another reason that she is a ideal choice for the Shero Barbie honor. The Barbie Shero line reflects the company's effort to offer more diverse dolls, while recognizing women who break boundaries.
