Barbie® recognizes all female role models. The Inspiring Women™ Series pays tribute to incredible heroines of their time; courageous women who took risks, changed rules, and paved the way for generations of girls to dream bigger than ever before. Born in Kansas in 1897, Amelia Mary Earhart exuded a spirit of adventure even as a young child. That young adventurous girl later became the first female aviator to ever fly across the Atlantic Ocean. Throughout her career, Amelia courageously challenged the conventions of the times; she broke and set aviation records for women. She believed her accomplishments would prove men and women could be equal in jobs. In 1937, in what was to be a record-making flight as the first woman to fly solo around the world, Amelia Earhart and her plane vanished without a trace. The Barbie® Inspiring Women™ Amelia Earhartdoll celebrates the ground-breaking achievements, heroism, and long-lasting contribution Amelia made in aviation and for women. Her legacy lives on and inspires others to soar in their own adventures. Includes doll, doll stand and Certificate of Authenticity.
