Mattel is introducing a new batch of Barbie dolls based on real-life figures, just ahead of International Women's Day.

They’re coming in two separate series of Barbie dolls.

"Inspiring Women," based on historical figures, and new additions to its "Shero" line of dolls named for inspirational contemporary women.

The three "inspiring women" dolls are aviator Amelia Earhart, artist Frida Kahlo and mathematician Katherine Johnson, with more to follow.

Mattel is releasing 14 new “Shero” dolls, in the series that started in 2015.

They include ones based on "Wonder Woman" director Patty Jenkins and U.S. snowboarder Chloe Kim.
