The Lego Gender Inequality Supposition

Dr. Siouxsie Wiles wrote an open letter to Lego and even got a response!

In the open letter she talks about the number of female figures in a pack of mini figures. But check out their expressions.

The radiation suit woman looks positively joyful. The guy is freaking out. The pyjama characters.... the woman has perfect hair and is smiling, the guy is yawning. In fact, the number of expressions worries me. For the gals you've got ecstatic, smiling and whatever the police woman has going on.

Way to reinforce unrealistic expectations of woman Lego... perfect hair and smiling... Yeah right...
