Abby Wambach is getting her own Barbie doll.

Mattel, the makers of the iconic Barbie doll for the past 57 years, recently revealed that the company would get with the times and start making dolls of different body types, skin tones, eye colors and hair types to reflect the diverse world in which we live.

On Wednesday, Mattel unveiled that Abby Wambach, the world’s all-time leading goal-scorer, will be getting her own Barbie doll.

“Playing with Barbies that may or may not have looked like I felt growing up, I think that this is a really impactful statement,” Wambach said. “It just proves that we really are getting somewhere and not everybody is created equal.”
