Weitzman states in her journal that there are differences between men and women in children’s books which reflect these traditional values of the 20th century. Women, typically mothers are often depicted as “nagging” while men, often the fathers are the ones who take their children to the “circus, park and zoo” (Weitzman, 1143).

This insecurity may develop over time to a low self-esteem. Society makes it seem that women have to be beautiful, skinny housewives that are dependent on men. Barbie is contributing to these ideals. “Because we don’t have money for a stupid-looking boy doll when we’d both rather ask for a new Barbie outfit next Christmas.” The little girl feels pressured by not having a Ken doll, but at the same time all of the little girls would rather ask for a new outfit with accessories than a new Ken
