Ava Duvernay Gets Her Own Barbie Doll

As part of its initiative to create Barbie dolls based on six women featured at Variety's Power of Women Luncheon, Mattel unveiled one modeled after filmmaker Ava Duvernay. The Selma director will donate her proceeds of the doll's sales to civil rights group ColorOfChange.org and human rights non-profit Witness. Mattel has not said when the AvaBarbie will go on sale or which stores will carry it.
