Funeral Director Barbie

Sarah Brown-Derbah started this petition to Mattel!

In the past 40 years, the number of funeral directors who are women in the United States has jumped from 5 percent to 43 percent, according to the New York State Funeral Directors Association. And 60 percent of today's mortuary science students are women, according to the National Funeral Directors Association.

I am a woman funeral director and I would like to bring awareness to the contribution of women in the funeral service profession to little girls everywhere. Barbie depicted as a funeral director would inspire the next generation of women funeral directors and be a sought after doll for all women currently working in the funeral service profession.

I have seen Barbie depicted as a teacher, nurse, doctor, and politician. Now, is the time for Funeral Director Barbie.

Sarah Brown-Derbah, LFD
