Mattel makes 1st hijab-wearing ‘Barbie’ honoring Olympian Ibtihaj Muhammad

American group Mattel unveiled on Monday its first ever hijab-wearing Barbie doll in honor of United States Olympic fencer Ibtihaj Muhammad, who became the first American Olympian to wear a headscarf while competing in 2016.

On its website, Mattel said the new Barbie is “inspiration for countless little girls who never saw themselves represented in sports and culture,” adding that it hopes the doll would “(show) girls they can be anything.”
