             Mattel, one of the worlds leading Toy Companies, has had their share of controversy with the Barbie Doll. Women right's activist feel there is much emphasizes on appearance in our society from weight, height, and race, rather than education, self-esteem and moral values, and that society as a whole needs to take responsibility in the empowerment and the development of children. In addition, as individuals, we have allowed societies image of beauty and acceptance infiltrate our own perceptions.

Society and individuals should discontinue the use or participation of any game, toy or sport that can be described any way as a negative image for children. .
