GIRLS BELIEVE THEY CAN BE ANYTHING, BUT DOES THE WORLD?
Barbie has been working to close the gap that comes between girls and their full potential.
The Dream Gap for young girls still exists, but new research shows the challenges don’t lie in girls lacking self-confidence or drive — the gaps often occur in the world around them.
Even though progress has been made toward gender equality, stereotypes and societal biases still exist that can affect a girl’s trajectory and future choices. The Barbie Dream Gap Project is a global mission dedicated to closing the gap by challenging gender stereotypes and helping undo the biases that hold girls back from reaching their full potential.
