Telling it like it is: Riley Barry delivers her speech

A five-year-old has been caught on camera delivering an impassioned speech against gender stereotyping in toy shops.

Standing against a backdrop of pink baby dolls, Riley Barry says it isn’t fair “for all the girls to buy princesses and all the boys to buy superheroes.”

Slapping her head for emphasis, the erudite toddler points out: “Girls want superheroes and the boys want superheroes.”

When asked why she thinks toys at marketed like that, Riley points at the doll display and says: “Because the companies who make these try to trick the girls into buying the pink stuff instead of stuff that boys want to buy, right?”

Her tirade continues: “Well then, why does all the girls have to buy pink stuff and all the boys have to buy different colour stuff?”

The man behind the camera concedes: “It’s a good question Riley.”

The clip, filmed in New York, has been viewed more than 200,000 times.
