"Dear Lego company:

My name is Charlotte. I am 7 years old and I love legos but I don’t like that there are more Lego boy people and barely any Lego girls.
Today I went to a store and saw legos in two sections the girls pink and the boys blue. All the girls did was sit at home, go to the beach, and shop, and they had no jobs but the boys went on adventures, worked, saved people, and had jobs, even swam with sharks.
I want you to make more Lego girl people and let them go on adventures and have fun ok!?!

Thank you.
From Charlotte."

Three female scientists— a paleontologist, an astronomer, and a chemist, will be released by LEGO this summer.

Dr. Ellen Kooijman, a scientist from Stockholm came up with the idea, as the winner of the latest "LEGO Ideas" promotion which allows fans to submit and vote for their favorite ideas for upcoming sets.

Earlier this year, a seven-year-old girl wrote to LEGO complaining about the stereotypical behavior of their sets. She asked LEGO to make girl figures that were shown going on adventures and having fun.

Her letter was shared hundreds of thousands of times online.

The new figures are due to be released in August of this summer.
