I’ve learned from my morning newspaper yesterday that the International Women’s Day had come to it’s 99th year of celebration. I shunned the idea of writing about it since I knew that post on this matter would surge in the blogsphere. While I was dropping back my EC, I was surprised that only one post on Women’s Day I happened to read. Not that I didn’t drop to a hundred blogs but it was like 1 out of 40. Where had all the women gone yesterday? Who would know. I definitely knew that I wasn’t on the road to express my vital role in the society but I appreciate those who were actively engaged in commemorating the IWD.
As I continued to flip over the pages of the newspaper, I came across an article about a familiar doll usually played by girls. It’s Barbie Doll turning 50 today. Just a day after the Women’s Day. Gosh! I didn’t know this popular doll is older than I am, yet, looking younger than I do. Nevertheless I don’t wish to be a doll. Dubbed as one of the most influential people who never lived (USA Today), this fashion doll has survived critics and mockeries due to its overly adult appearance. Barbie has continued to impress the small girls around the world and look how far she’d come today. Barbara Millicent Roberts otherwise known as Barbie is turning 50 today. I, myself, did not play any Barbie doll when I was a little girl as its existence wasn’t known to me then. Instead, I used to play paper dolls resembling Barbie. 🙂
This song prompted the creator of Barbie to file lawsuit against the recording company for using the color of the logo and inappropriate lyrics. But the favor went to the song as it was protected as a parody stated in a certain constitution.
