Here is a cute youtube video about Bronte sister dolls, whose skills include kicking butt and getting their voices heard. The Bronte sisters all faced sexist publishers who refused to believe that women could write and publish books. As an author myself, I give a solemn nod to those who came before me. Thanks for the perseverance! The commercial for the dolls is hilarious. Check it out.
I found this link in several places, but Sociological Images also has a write up on it here.
