Barbie's First Hijab: Meet The New Ibtihaj Muhammad Fencing Barbie Doll

Olympic fencer Ibithaj Muhammad, who became the first American athlete at the Games to ever compete in a hijab, is now the inspiration for the first ever Barbie doll to wear the head covering in the toy's 58-year history. 

The doll was unveiled on Monday at the Glamour Women of the Year Summit as the latest "Shero" Barbie

"It's so cool to see myself in this little doll form with my fencing uniform on," Muhammad says. "I just love it." 

The doll will be released to the public in fall 2018. 

Previous "Shero" Barbie inspirations include model Ashley Graham, actress Zendaya, ballet dancer Misty Copeland, and country singer Trisha Yearwood.
