Just in time for Women’s History Month, Barbie is currently celebrating their 60th anniversary with Mattel. To commerate the occasion, Barbie is honoring several woman they view as role models and “sheroes.”

Some of the honorees include our favs, Tennis champion Naomi Osaka and Grown-ish star Yara Shahidi and several women who are making their mark in media, business, sports, art and tech.

The general manager and senior vice president of Barbie released a statement:

“With more than 200 careers, six runs for president and a trip to the moon before Neil Armstrong, Barbie continues to evolve to be a modern, relevant role model for all ages. The Barbie brand believes girls should never know a world, job, or dream women haven’t conquered. Through our global platform, we are igniting a movement to help close the Dream Gap and further establish Barbie as the ultimate girl empowerment brand.”

Every dollar spent on these dolls will be donated to the Dream Gap Project, an initiative for “leveling the playing field for girls.”

Yara shared the exciting news on her Instagram.
