Barbie is getting a makeover!
The new doll is modeled after Ibtihaj Muhammad, the 1st American Olympic fencer to compete while wearing a hijab..and win a bronze medal in fencing at the 2016 Rio Games.
The doll is part of the Barbie "Shero" line that honors women who break boundaries.
Mattel says the doll will be available online next fall.
Thank you @Mattel for announcing me as the newest member of the @Barbie #Shero family! I’m proud to know that little girls everywhere can now play with a Barbie who chooses to wear hijab! This is a childhood dream come true 😭💘 #shero pic.twitter.com/py7nbtb2KD— Ibtihaj Muhammad (@IbtihajMuhammad) November 13, 2017
