The first hijab wearing Barbie doll has been released.

Olympic fencer Ibtihaj Muhammad has been shrunk down to doll size. As it did for Ashley Graham and Ava DuVernay before her, Mattel has made a custom doll to honor the athlete, the first Muslim-American woman on a U.S. Olympic team to wear a hijab.

“When I was growing up, I didn’t have many options of dolls that looked like me,” said Muhammad at the Glamour Women of the Year Summit. “But today, we’re changing that.” When she was younger, Muhammad used to sew hijabs onto her Barbie dolls. “Now Mattel is doing it for us,” she added.
