We think this little girl is swell.
When one little girl noticed that there were only 5 female characters in the game “Guess Who?”, and 19 males, she did what any 6-year-old would do — fire off a letter to Hasbro.
Here’s the letter in full, via Jezebel:
My name is R______. I am six years old. I think it’s not fair to only have 5 girls in Guess Who and 19 boys. It is not only boys who are important, girls are important too. If grown ups get into thinking that girls are not important they won’t give little girls much care.
Also if girls want to be a girl in Guess Who they’ll always lose against a boy, and it will be harder for them to win. I am cross about that and if you don’t fix it soon, my mum could throw Guess Who out.
My mum typed this message but I told her what to say.”
