Women role models in all kinds of positions are so important for young girls and women. This is why I think EthiDolls is awesome. And the fact that the company is founded by women is equally exciting.
EthiDolls, has been co-founded by two Ethiopian born women now living in the New York City area. They tell the stories of African Women Leaders from history and designs the authentic dolls that represent them.
You can read more here about these dolls that are WAY beyond Barbie...and the American Girl series.
You go, EthiDolls!
