Barbie is coming to the White House.

The company will be creating a doll in honor of first lady Eleanor Roosevelt.

This comes as a part of Barbie’s Inspiring Women Series, which also includes doll versions of women like Billie Jean King, Rosa Parks, and Maya Angelou.

Mattel chose the former first lady because of her involvement with civil and economic rights.

The company has been working for years to diversify the toy after being criticized for promoting a narrow view of beauty.
