As an American woman and a member of Puma PAC, People United Means Action, I have a couple of questions about your marvelous new Slave Barbie Collector’s Item:
- Does she come with stones?
- Does her head come off?
- Does she come with a tiny vial of acid?
- Does she need to be accompanied by a man in order to leave the store?
- Who gets flogged if she takes her Burqa off in public? Doll? Or child?
- Who arranges Burqa Barbie’s marriage?
- If Burqa Barbie is “honor killed” do I get a refund?
The Burkha Slave Barbie is an outrage. My family, friends, and I will be boycotting ALL of Mattel’s products this holiday season, including, of course, Barbie, but also Hot Wheels, Fisher Price, and American Girl. We will DEFINITELY NOT BE BUYING any toys from Mattel for girls ever again after this outrageous insult to women and girls and to the women who fight for women’s freedom and rights worldwide.

The picture at the top of this thread breaks my heart in more ways than I can say. To think of that girl in terms of this despicable decision by Mattel and Sotheby’s is too much. Do the PROWL. Tell your friends. Thanks to FLBarbara and BJ Kling.
