Barbie’s Next Career? Computer Engineer

Okay, so the choices were limited to computer engineer, architect, environmentalist, news anchor and surgeon. No cell biologist here, but still, a move in the right direction, perhaps. What's that oft repeated dictum....if you can't effect change on your terms, do it on theirs? Note that "... while the popular vote went to computer engineer, Mattel noted that girls selected news anchor as their favored career for the doll that, over the years, has been an aerobics instructor, nurse, flight attendant, NASCAR driver and an ambassador."
