#SheSociety rounds up this week’s newest finds
Following EXYRA’s hugely successful range of innovative blue light blocking eyewear, the brand releases its gender-neutral collection of premium polarised sunglasses with UVA/B and blue light protection.
“As many Australians lead an active lifestyle, day-to-day tasks, including work, are no longer confined to internal office spaces,” said Raymond Seubelan, founder of EXYRA. “As a society now reliant on technology when outside, these glasses stylishly protect users from digitally-induced blue light as well as the sun’s harmful UV rays.”
Handcrafted in Queensland and made from durable and skin-friendly acetate, the range includes 6 unique styles with cultural references to Australia’s rich and colourful heritage, including the Kalina, the Clarke, the Delta, the Jedda, the Hogan and the Robbie.
Bird watchers on both sides of the U.S.-Mexico border share their enthusiasm for protecting and preserving some of the world’s most beautiful species.
Mattel, the company responsible for Barbie, has released its first line of gender neutral dolls. The Creatable World line features a variety of kits that come with over 100 different looks – including hairstyles, clothes and accessories – which subsequently gives children the power to mix and match as they choose.
“In our world, dolls are as limitless as the kids who play with them,” the Creatable World site reads. “Designed to keep labels out and invite everyone in—giving kids the freedom to create their own customisable characters again and again.”
“A world without labels means everyone is invited to play.”
Mattel consultant Jess Weiner sat down with TIME to explain that this new line of gender-neutral dolls is merely a sign of the times.
“From the kids, they did not want their toys to be labelled,” Weiner noted. “They don’t want rules set around their play. And what we heard from parents was an increasing concern about genderising toys.”
