Lego unveils a new female scientist figurine, who looks normal and well-adjusted and is even wearing lab gloves. This is a huge step in the right direction for the company that was behind Lego Friends, which was not exactly an A+ in the feminism department (see this video and this video).

Read Maia Weinstock’s take on the new Lego scientist at Scientific American (she waited in line to get that figurine up there).

I recently released a miniature Lego Joe as a limited edition of one.
