Home English Google celebrates International Women’s Day with interactive doodle.
On March 8, International Women’s Day, Google decided to celebrate the occasion with doodles from 12 female artists from different parts of the world. “Specifically, each story represents a moment, person, or event that has impacted their lives as women. While each artist tells a unique story, the themes are universal, reminding us of how much we often have in common. We hope that the combined power of words and images help bring these stories to life in a way that invokes feelings of understanding, empathy, and spirit of the day,” says the statement on the doodle blog.
These works — by Anna Haifisch (Nov 1989), Chihiro Takeuchi (Ages and Stages), Estelí Meza (My Aunt Blossoms), Francesca Sanna (The Box), Isuri (Aarthi the Amazing), Karabo Poppy Moletsane (Ntsoaki’s Victory), Kaveri Gopalakrishnan (Up on the Roof), Laerte (Love), Philippa Rice (Trust), Saffa Khan (Homeland), Tillie Walden (Minutes) and Tunalaya Dunn (Inwards) — have been translated into more than 80 languages.
The internet giant has also asked users to share their personal stories using the hashtag #HerStoryOurStory, as they “wanted to take the opportunity to celebrate the stories and voices of another group of extraordinary women—the everyday women living all over the world.”
