@barbie has selected Dame Valerie Adams to be their New Zealand role model for 2020. They've created a "one off" Valerie Barbie doll (Or the Valer-bie as some are calling it). Sadly, there is only one in the world. Help us petition Mattel to not just stop there, but stock the shelves with many Valer-bies available to everyone. 

Today Valerie posted on social media "We need to nurture our future generation to believe and trust in themselves. Creating an opportunity to have a powerful, Pacifica woman role model in the hands of the next generation."

"As a mum, it is my responsibility to be a positive role model for my daughter and as an athlete, throughout my career I have been able to reach more young girls all around the world especially New Zealand to inspire and empower them to be the best version of themselves".

We all know there needs to be more strong and diverse women represented in society, and especially in children's toys and media. Who knows how many amazing future role models will be inspired as they feel represented by the Valer-bie.

Let's help them feel fearless to achieve their potential, as we (society) choose to recognize an inspiring and incredible women: Dame Valerie Adams.
