Google celebrates International Women’s Day with special doodle
In yet another powerful doodle, Google has featured women in various fields of study, from science to music, for its International Women’s Day special edition on its homepage.
The latest doodle shows sketches of women, in roles which are still considered unconventional for them to pursue, within the Google alphabets. From being a scientist, musician, astronaut, chef, athlete, teacher, and writer, it represents the modern-day women.
The doodle’s caption reads: Happy International Women’s Day!
In 2013 Google’s Women’s Day doodle featured hand-drawn faces of 27 women from around the world and Google added real women and some Zap Mama music to create its Women’s Day 2014 video doodle.
In 2012 International Women’s Day coincided with Holi and coincidentally the Women’s Day doodle had a Holi-like feel about it. In 2011, the 100th anniversary of the event, Google had posted an interactive Google Map inviting users to join tens of thousands people on bridges all over the world to show support for women’s causes.
Google has doodled the International Women’s Day on seven previous occasions. First in 2005, then consecutively every year from 2009 to 2015.
International Women’s Day was first celebrated on March 18, 1911 in four European countries – Austria, Denmark, Germany and Switzerland. The United Nations began officially supporting and sponsoring the event since 1975, the year that was designated as International Women’s Year.
International Women’s Day
This is why female achievement across the globe has been marked with a Google Doodle
Today marks International Women’s Day, an annual event that celebrates women’s accomplishments and promotes global gender equality.
This year’s theme is ‘make it happen’ and aims to encourage effective action for advancing and recognizing women. It focuses on women in different professional sectors; the arts, female-owned businesses, in senior leadership roles, and all aspects of working environments where gender parity has still not been achieved.
In the UK, the gender pay gap still stands at a significant 17.5%, while the Equalities and Human Rights Commission estimates it will take 70 years to see an equal number of female and male directors of FTSE 100 companies.
Unfortunately, gender discrimination does not stop there, with mothers facing an even greater challenge when they try to return to the work place after their maternity leave. A study in August 2014 found one in ten of those in low paid work were demoted to a more junior role when they returned to work.
Google has celebrated International Women’s Day with a doodle presenting women in high achieving roles as astronauts, scientists, athletes, teachers, musicians, chefs and writers – roles that were once reserved solely for men. It links out to a series of stories highlighting why such an event is still so crucial over a century after it was first launched. The doodle’s caption reads: “Happy International Women’s Day!’
The first International Women’s Day was held in 1911 and is celebrated annually on 8 March with thousands of events across the world.
It was honored for the first time in Austria, Denmark, Germany and Switzerland on 19 March, where more than one million men and women attended rallies campaigning for women’s rights to work, vote, be trained, to hold public office and treated equally to their male peers.
The United Nations has its own gender equality related theme each year. This year it is ‘empowering women – empowering humanity – picture it!’. It imagines a world where girls and women can have equal rights, exercise their own choices, earn at the same rate as men and live free of gender-based violence and sexual abuse.
“As it appears in …. “
~~International Women’s Day Doodle 2016: #OneDayIWill~~
~~Published on Mar 7, 2016~~
Over the years, Doodles have marked the achievements of women in science, civil rights, journalism, sports, arts, technology and beyond. But for our 2016 International Women’s Day Doodle, we wanted to celebrate the next generation of Doodle-worthy women—the engineers, educators, leaders, movers and shakers of tomorrow.
So we visited 13 cities around the world and asked 337 girls and women to complete the sentence “One Day I Will…”
Then, we made this video.
From San Francisco, Rio de Janeiro, Mexico City, Lagos, Moscow, Cairo, Berlin, London, Paris, Jakarta, Bangkok, New Delhi and Tokyo, the women we met make up a diverse mosaic of personalities, ages and backgrounds. And their aspirations are just as varied—ranging from the global to the very personal, from discovering more digits of pi to becoming a mother to giving a voice to those who can’t speak.
We also asked some more familiar figures to participate, including anthropologist Jane Goodall—who wants to discuss the environment with the Pope—and Nobel Prize Winner Malala Yousafzai and activist Muzoon Almellehan, who are working fearlessly toward a future where every girl can go to school. Despite already impressive accomplishments under their belts, these women continue to dream big.
