I am a doll. And yet, I’ve always caused a bit of a stir, starting with my debut as a teenage fashion model in a swimsuit in 1959. My creation was met with skepticism and judgment. But I was designed by a woman and mother determined to give girls a way to play, to imagine and to dream—and it was those girls who understood me and made me an instant success. Over time, I’ve become an icon, and as with all icons, I’ve been pulled into the cultural conversation.
