Getting Ready to Run
Erin Loos Cutraro, BS Ed '98, has a long history of championing women in politics. As the founder and CEO of She Should Run, a nonprofit organization working to increase the number of women running for office, she's also gained an internationally recognized client: Barbie.
Her partnership with Mattel helped create the 2016 Presidential and Vice Presidential Barbie; with the 2020 election on the horizon, She Should Run has teamed up with Mattel once again to produce an entire campaign team. The Barbie 2020 Career of the Year set includes a campaign candidate, fundraiser, manager and voter, with additional play ballots and printable activities designed to help girls learn about political engagement.
"2020 is an incredible time for us to inspire young women and girls to lead," said Loos Cutraro, in an interview with The Root. "By getting them excited today, we’re giving them the confidence to raise their voices and run for office tomorrow.”
