On March 8th, we’ll celebrate one of the best holidays of the year — International Women’s Day. This is a day dedicated to raising awareness about gender parity as we celebrate all the women in our lives. Google is even getting in on the International Women’s Day celebration. On March 8th, the Google search page will display 12 Google Doodles related to International Women’s Day.
To do that, the Doodle team decided to feature 12 artists from 12 different countries. Each of the artists’ illustrations depict a moment in their life that impacted them as a woman.
One of the featured artists is South African illustrator Karabo Poppy Moletsane. To Molestane, International Women’s Day is an opportunity for her to celebrate those who have fought for gender equality across the world.
Saffa Khan, who hails from both Pakistan and the U.K., hopes that, through her Doodle, viewers can empathize with her and realate to her experience as an immigrant.
And Brazillian artist Laerte wishes that viewers would “see how our prejudices many times destroy meaningful possibilities in life,” when looking at her illustration.
You’ll be able to see all 12 Google Doodles on March 8th, International Women’s Day. Each illustration tells an important story about womanhood and the female experience. Not only will they open your eyes and mind to the experiences of others, but you might find that you can relate to more people than you originally expected.
