Four-year-old had a Women’s March protest with dolls and it’s absolutely perfect
Sure, going to the Women’s March on Washington following Donald Trump’s inauguration might have been a historic moment, but hosting a march in your backyard featuring adorable dolls might be just as cool.
Four-year old Rose’s delightful protest went viral last week after her parent’s posted photographs to Facebook of her dolls ready and geared up for resistance.
“I came up with the idea and Wendy and I made up the slogans and then Rose helped tape the signs and made two of her own,” Rose’s father, Mark Redfern explained to BuzzFeed. “As she made the first one, she scribbled lines and talked as she did about loving people.”
“It’s our job as parents to guide her through this crazy world and help her understand what’s going on and to encourage her to grow into a strong and confident woman,” he explained.
Because of travel and safety concerns, the Lexington, Virginia-based family stayed put at home and created signs that were fitting for various Barbies, like a glass ceiling references for Cinderella, a frog-related reference for Princess Tiana, or climate change statements held by Poison Ivy.
“We plan to raise Rose to be engaged and active. When she gets older she can make her own decisions on how political she wants to be and what side she falls on, we’ll love her no matter what,” Redfern said.
No official word yet, but it might have been the largest Barbie protest in history.
