On her 60th birthday, Barbie honours 20 Sheroes

With more than 200 careers, Barbie continues to evolve to be a modern, relevant role model for all ages.

And as she turns 60 today, it is honouring 20 role models across 18 countries speaking 14 different languages only to inspire girls to follow their heart when it comes to deciding their career.
