Berlin's New Barbie Dreamhouse Opens to Feminists' Protests

Jump to last reply

In what could be another very popular site with Berlin sightseers the world's second BarbieDreamHouse has opened in a previously grey dour section of former East Berlin - right near Alexanderplatz.

But the opening was marred by protests from feminists who decry the stereotype of women's role in German society exemplified in the Barbie exhibits - Germany has the least integration of women in white collar and government jobs of any EU country, NPR said yesterday.

Anyway sounds like this could be a fun place - especially for kids - the Berlin venture follows on the heels of a similar BarbieDreamHouse having been opened in South Florida. But in Germany Barbie is really coming home as the doll, according to NPR yesterday, was born in Germany when the Mattel Company modeled a doll of a popular German comics character..
