Barbie Gets Her Geek On

I missed the viral campaigning for this, probably because I don't focus on computer engineering/technician blogs in my time online, but I'm so glad to see Barbie becoming a more modern woman. I remember playing with Barbie as a little girl. I would cut her hair and have her be a mom or a teacher, very traditionally female roles. While she's just a toy, this is still a step forward in feminism and getting young girls into male dominated professions like computer science jobs.

For more information about the vote and Barbie's previous professions, read the original Wall Street Journal article.
