If you’ve been following the Doc McStuffins movement, then you know that it is a widely beloved cartoon with a strong real-life following of African-American female doctors of color who see little Doc as an extension of them; women who were once little girls who dreamed of being a leader in a field dominated by men.
One woman, Dr. Myeisha Taylor, was so proud of the positive Doc McStuffins cartoon that she become one of the founding members of the Artemis Medical Society – a 3,000 member organization of women of color physicians formed in June 2012 by 12 American women after they saw a reflection of themselves in the “Doc McStuffins” character.
And on January 10th, Disney Junior will give a nod to the Artemis Society and Myeisha Taylor by naming Doc McStuffins mom, MYIESHA MCSTUFFINS! Check out the video on Melissa Harris-Perry Show.
