Alexis Ohanian is using his daughter’s famous doll to help empower girls
Now, the dad of 4 year-old Olympia is utilizing that popularity to attempt and influence women to pursue their enthusiasms as a method of fighting versus a patriarchal society that hasn’t constantly valued them.
“I think every little bit of progress forward is a step in the right direction,” Ohanian stated. “I can’t help but think that it will continue to be incumbent upon, I’ll certainly say people like me dudes who have positions of power and influence and privilege to find ways to spotlight, to support, to champion and to do the work.”
The happy woman daddy stated Olympia does not precisely comprehend how popular her doll — offered by means of Amazon for $29.99 — has actually ended up being.
However he has actually understood the power of utilizing the doll, art and the web to attempt and assist empower kids, specifically girls.

All of that started with a coloring book, all that started with some crayons, some markers and some free time. And now that I have a daughter, I’ve actually found it kind of meditative to color with her.”
