Join us for a Jam Session with Jas Boothe as she talks about the issues with purchasing inclusion, and why it simply doesn't work. She'll discuss why we need to instead deliver a message that toys are not equality problem solvers, and what the larger issue is — one that goes beyond a price tag. Changing the world requires us to promote real-life women as role models, instead of Barbie dolls.
