Graham is the latest addition to Mattel’s Sheroes line which includes other amazing women such as Actress Zendaya, Ballerina Misty Copeland, and Olympic Gymnast Gabby Douglas. “(Graham) challenges the conversation around body norms, and we think that’s a really important message for girls,” says Lisa McKnight, senior vice president for Mattel’s Barbie brand.

Unfortunately, there are no immediate plans to release the doll for purchase. We here at My Own Sense of Fashion are hopeful that will soon change especially given the popularity of Graham herself. Mattel is continuing on expanding diversity.  Back in March, the brand announced the addition of three new body shapes to their fashionista line.
