Google celebrates International Women’s Day with an interactive doodle

Reading Time: 2 minutes

To mark the International Women’s Day on March 8, Google is swapping out its usual rainbow-colored search page logo in order to celebrate the work of 12 female artists from around the world through interactive Doodles.

“To mark the day that celebrates the very best of womanhood, Google dropped a Doodle early on Thursday, which features 12 different designs by 12 different female artists – each depicting their own fascinating personal stories. “Specifically, each story represents a moment, person, or event that has impacted their lives as women,” Google said in a statement.

“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,” the statement added.

Additionally, the works of the 12 artists has been translated in more than 80 languages and the Doodle will be visible to every one accessing the search engine’s home page throughout the world, except for Antarctica.

The Doodle highlights artists Anna Haifisch, Chihiro Takeuchi, Estelí Meza, Francesca Sanna, Isuri, Karabo Poppy Moletsane, Kaveri Gopalakrishnan, Laerte, Philippa Rice, Saffa Khan, Tillie Walden and Tunalaya Dunn.

As soon as you click, you can choose to see the story of any artist of your choice. Once you are done with an artist’s story, a small menu icon on the bottom of the doodle lets you go back to the main template to check out the others. Also, to make the process more organized, a small tick will appear as soon as you are done with the story.

Not only this, the company is also encouraging other women across the world to share their own stories for International Women’s Day with the hashtag “#HerStoryOurStory.”

International Women’s Day has been observed since the early 1900s to promote gender parity and to celebrate “the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women.”
