Empowering Girls to Take a Chance. Laurie LaMondie, Joan Plavchan Woodward Elementary. “It is very hard to be a female leader. While it is assumed that any man, no matter how tough, has a soft side . . . any female leader is assumed to be one-dimensional.” Billy Jean King.

In 1992, Mattel Toys put the first talking Barbie doll on the market.
Barbie\'s first words were, "Math class is tough." Mattel thought they were simply expressing the feelings of most school-age girls. Many parents and teachers, though, thought Barbie should keep her mouth shut.
As a result, Barbie stopped talking.
