    my women's studies students get really engaged in is the topic of Barbie dolls - most of them had one when younger.

    We have them read Susan Jane Gilman's article, "Klaus Barbie, and Other Dolls I'd Like to See".

    Lively discussion ensues about how Barbie (and Ken) distort and shape perceptions of beauty image, race, and gender norms in children.

    thanks for this link - will save it for next semester.
