Ao irmán pequeno de McKenna Pope encantáballe cociñar, mais non lle gustaba empregar unha cociniña de xoguete que era para nenas. Así que aos 13 anos, Pope iniciou unha petición en liña para a empresa de xoguetes estadounidense Hasbro co fin de cambiar as cores rosa e violeta do clásico xoguete e incluir aos nenos na publicidade de TV. Nunha charla alentadora, Pope toma a causa dos xoguetes non sexistas e fai unha chamada vehemente á acción a tódolos nenos que se sinten impotentes.
