About this Deal
It's the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment giving women the right to vote and Mattel released a new Barbie to celebrate.
The toy company unveiled a new Susan B. Anthony doll last week as a part of its line of inspiring women. The National Susan B. Anthony Museum & House in Rochester, New York, officially unveiled the doll on October 1. It appeared on Mattel's website on Monday.
Anthony is known for her work for woman suffrage and her infamous arrest after voting in the 1872 presidential election when it was illegal for women to do so. She also spoke out against slavery and was instrumental in getting colleges to admit women.
The launch is especially significant as 2020 marks the museum's 75th anniversary, Anthony's 200th birthday, as well as the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment, which gave women the right to vote.
The limited-edition doll is dressed in a black and lace dress that reaches the floor and is complete with glasses and a cameo brooch. The doll sells for $29.99 on Barbie's website and Amazon.
