Controversial activist Yassmin Abdel-Magied has inspired a line of Muslim dolls.
The dolls called Salam Sisters were created by Australian Muslim designer Peter Gould, who wanted his daughters to have toys that represented their lives.
There are five different dolls in the range – each with different personalities, interests and fashion tastes.

All wear a hijab and show no flesh other than on the face.
Designer Subhi Bora explained her concepts to Yassmin Abdel-Magied on her ABC show Hijabistas.
Talking about one of the $70 dolls, she said: ‘Yasmina here wants to start her own charity which sounds a little bit like what you did.’
‘We actually did draw some inspiration from you to be honest when we were crafting the personality.’
The company behind the dolls, Zileej, run by Peter Gould, explains the inspiration on its website.
‘Young girls love dolls and for many, they are an important and compelling medium to create lasting memories.
‘With young daughters ourselves, we noticed that none of the dolls they were playing with represented their lives as contemporary young Muslim girls – characters with diverse influences and interests from science to fashion, to singing Islamic songs or nasheeds.
‘This resulted in the Salam Sisters, a collection of five culturally diverse characters who are faith grounded, fun, modest fashion-forward and future thinking.’
Yassmin Abdel-Magied, 27, is a Sudanese-Australian mechanical engineer, social media blogger and memoirist.
She caused controversy by tweeting before Anzac Day in 2017: ‘Lest. We. Forget (Manus, Nauru, Syria, Palestine)’ in reference to asylum seekers being detained on Papua New Guinea’s Manus Island.
