Gore v. doll (Al Gore v. Barbie doll)
May 1, 2000: The “Barbie for President” campaign was announced and included the launch of an official campaign website that outlines her position on various topics — including education, the environment and gender equality.
An examination of policy positions found Barbie closely resembling then-candidate Al Gore.
On the environment, Gore said, “Because of its importance to our air, our water, and the fabric of life itself, I believe that we have an obligation to protect the environment for future generations.”
Barbie noted “it’s time we take a stand to care for Mother Earth. Clean air, clean water, and a clean environment are vital to our health. Barbie knows our playgrounds, our parks and our neighborhoods will be more kid-safe and kid-friendly if we keep them clean.”
