Trailblazing actor Anna May Wong is making her debut in the Barbie’s Inspiring Women series.

Wong, who is considered the first Chinese American female actor in Hollywood, will be the first Asian American figure featured in the Mattel collection, which highlights notable women in history such as poet Dr. Maya Angelou, first lady Eleanor Roosevelt and artist Frida Kahlo.

The doll, released Monday, features her iconic blunt bangs, a red-and-gold dress adorned with a dragon, a sheer red cape and gold heels. It also comes with literature that talks about the actor’s accomplishments. ···
