In a series of tweets that have gone viral on social media, one account on Twitter shared thoughts on the Supreme Court’s “American Girl” dolls.
Protests between abortion rights and anti-abortion groups erupted after a draft bill obtained by Politico showed the Supreme Court may want to overturn Roe v. Calf. Roe v. calf was a court case in the 1970s that gave a woman the right to choose to have an abortion in the United States.
A meme account with the username @klitklittedge shared a viral tweet thread explaining the “American Girl” opinions on the Supreme Court. The thread has over 18,000 likes.
American Girl Dolls was founded by Pleasant T. Rowland because she believed that dolls with different backstories could help influence young children. With the historical dolls from different eras came inspirational books and films. Aside from the historical figures, they have added customizable dolls as well as more decades.
“The American Girl experience is more than just a collection of toys. It’s a collection of magical moments of goodness — moments that feed a little girl’s spirit, stimulate her imagination and make her dreams come true,” said Rowland.
In the eight-tweet thread, the report expressed how the “American Girl” dolls would feel about the Supreme Court, established in 1789, beginning with Kaya.
“Kaya, the American Girl Doll who represents 1764, doesn’t know what the Supreme Court is,” the report wrote, with a picture of the doll that read, “What?”
“Josefina, an American Girl doll who lived in what we now call New Mexico during the period between Mexico’s declaration of independence from Spain and the Mexican-American War, has no opinion on the US Supreme Court,” read another tweet.
“Addy, the American Girl Doll representing 1864, resonates with the essence of a famous speech by Frederick Douglass delivered to the American Anti-Slavery Society on its anniversary in 1857,” the thread continued.
“Kit, the American Girl Doll who represents the Great Depression, noted FDR supporters, opposes the Four Horsemen of the Supreme Court,” read another tweet.
“Julie, our second-wave feminist icon, acknowledges the victories that women’s rights enjoyed before the Supreme Court in the early 1970s, but continues to push for ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment,” the thread concluded.
“This is such a great thread,” replied one user.
“It’s just dawning on me that up until college, most of what I knew about US history came from the American Girl books,” said another.
“Twitter has a winner every day. Today you won,” tweeted one user.
