CHARLOTTE BENJAMIN is a seven-year-old girl with strong ideas about how the world should be.

So when she was disappointed with the gender balance of the Lego on the toyshop shelves, she upped and wrote this excellent letter to the company:

Here’s the full text:

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 pink girls and the blue boys. 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.

The letter has now gone viral, after Charlotte’s dad sent it to Sociological Images. Their tweet has been retweeted almost 2,000 times.
