It is only in death that she is finally admired as the perfect woman. The use of irony, imagery, and form in this poem allow Piercy to expose the harsh treatment of society on women everywhere. “Barbie Doll” has a level of irony that emphasizes the girl’s situation, especially her relationship with others.
