Join us for a special screening of the Hulu documentary Tiny Shoulders: Rethinking Barbie, featuring newly discovered footage and unprecedented access to the inner workings of a toy giant during Barbie’s biggest reinvention, surveys 60 years of women in popular culture through the lens of this 11.5 inch, Zelig-like plastic icon. Featuring interviews with Gloria Steinem, Roxane Gay, Peggy Orenstein, Mattel insiders and cultural historians, the documentary reveals, through both funny and fascinating archival material, and fly-on-the-wall observations of Barbie’s current architects, the progression and regression in the fight for gender equality. 

Following the screening, President Lorne Buchman will moderate a discussion with Andrea Nevins, producer, writer and director of Tiny Shoulders; and Kim Culmone, senior vice president and global head of design, Barbie & Fashion Dolls at Mattel.

Seating is limited. Don't forget to register your attendance.
