I'm Cat. I'm 21 and an English student.
My lifelong dream is to someday be a functioning, independent adult with a pension scheme and everything.

Barbie has had many careers, costumes and gimmicks over the years. She has even traveled back in time! One of Barbie’s many stops is the 18th century, where she has donned the guise of an English aristocrat, a pastoral shepherdess—and even Queen Marie Antoinette herself. Let’s stick a feather in Barbie’s inch-high pouf and take a look at some of Barbie’s forays into the Age of Enlightenment.
Have you heard of Ban Bossy? It’s the new initiative from Lean In and the Girl Scouts that’s trying to ban “bossy” and similar words that are used to bring down girls that are ambitious, take risks, and speak up. By changing the way we treat girls who lead, hopefully our generation will someday see more women in leadership roles.
