Little girls throughout America should know that Barbie is not drawn to scale. In this tongue-in-cheek essay on the role Barbie has played in her life, Emily Prager (b. 1952) reveals the damaging effect of a doll that establishes such an impossible standard of physical perfection for little girls—and for little boys who grow up expecting their girlfriends to look like Barbie. When not contemplating what Barbie has done to her, Emily Prager is an essayist and fiction writer who has published for The National Lampoon, The Village Voice, and Penthouse, among other magazines. Her books include a work of historical fiction for children, World War II Resistance Stories; a book of humor, The Official I Hate Videogames Handbook; and works of fiction such as Eve's Tattoo ( 1 9 9 1 ) and Clea and Zeus Divorce (1987).
