This is an important subject for both men and woman. Thank goodness gender violence is no longer considered taboo and to be only woman's work.

Brilliant!!!

Dear Lego company,

My name is Charlotte. I am 7 years old and I love legos but I don't like that there are more lego boy people and barely any lego girls. today I went to a store and saw legos in two sections the girls pink and the boys blue. All the girls did was sit at home, go to the beach, and shop, and they had no jobs but the boys went on adventures, worked, saved people, and had jobs, even swam with sharks. I want you to make more lego girl people and let them go on adventures and have fun ok!?!

Thank you.

from Charlotte

The Legal Balance's curator insight, February 5, 2:23 PM

Love this! She is asking to go on adventures, have a job, even swim with sharks, and not simply to go shopping and stay in the home.
