Guys and Dolls: Feminism and the Moschino Barbie Ad
Remember this Barbie commercial, which came out in October? You know, the totally inspirational one with the feminist message?:
No, not the one where grown adults laughed at little girls acting as though they could be anything they wanted to be.
I’m talking about this one!:
Why? Because the first Barbie ad focuses on girls. Girls and dolls. It just regurgitates what everyone knows is Feminism 101: Girls Can Do Anything They Want To Do.
When does it get next-level? Guys and Dolls. Yep: acknowledging that boys play with dolls, and encouraging it, too. Think about it: it’s 2015. Isn’t it about damn time?
That includes guys…and dolls.
