My heart broke the day I had to explain to my daughter why there are no “legomanses girls”. I then did some research and found that out of the minifigs…..about 10% were girls in traditional girl roles, as if the last 40 years of equality had not happened, as if girls were not doctors, lawyers, fighter jet pilots, soldiers, engineers, architects, designers and anything else that girls might aspire too.

A hospital would have been excellent, much better than a salon, in my opinion. Part of the idea was that the Lego girls all live in the same town & are friends, so I doubt the archaeological dig & space station would have worked, but a museum would have been awesome. And a horse academy would only be familiar to rich kids or farm kids, so maybe a zoo would have been better. We should all write to Lego.

    A seven-year-old girl reportedly wrote a letter to Lego asking why "there are more Lego boy people and barely any Lego girls." The letter, dated Jan. 25, was posted on The Society Pages, a website run by the University of Minnesota.

    Another user posted: “You never thought you had to make "special" Legos for girls when I was growing up. All you needed to do to capture 'the other 50 per cent' is start running this advertising campaign again. P.S many of them are already into your product as is.”
