May 27, 2022

Laverne Cox is a four-time Emmy-nominated actress, an Emmy-winning producer, an activist and, now, a Barbie doll.

Mattel Creations has released what it describes as a “Barbie Tribute Collection Laverne Cox Doll”. The doll, released Wednesday, is selling for $40

Ms Cox, who has gone on to win numerous Emmy Awards and is an outspoken advocate for transgender issues, said she was shamed as a child for wanting a Barbie.

“I went out and bought a Barbie doll and played with her and dressed her and it was a way for me to heal my inner child,” she said.
