On this occasion of International Women’s Day, Google is celebrating womanhood with its amazing Doodle. It is honoring 13 inspiring women who’ve helped us get where we are today as women. The Google Doodle narrates a bedtime story, told by an elderly woman to her granddaughter about 13 remarkable women. In her imagination, the little girl then visits these pioneers. And takes us along with her on a journey, spanning centuries and circling the globe.
Determination and grace
So, who are these women? They are the women who became successful by fighting their way through. Even on the time when women were hardly respected as a human being. Among them are American Journalist and Civil rights activist Ida Wells, Halet Çambel- the first Turkish woman to compete in the Olympics, Ada Lovelace-English mathematician and world’s first computer programmer.
Hard work and beauty
The Doodle also features Frida Kahlo – Mexican painter and activist, Olga Skorokhodova – Soviet scientist and researcher, Lina Bo Bardi – Italian-born Brazilian architect, Sally Ride – American astronaut and the first woman in space, Miriam Makeba – South African singer and civil rights activist, Rukmini Devi – Indian dancer and choreographer, Lotfia El Nadi – Egypt’s first female pilot, Cecilia Grierson – the first woman in Argentina to receive a medical degree, Lee Tai-young – Korea’s first female lawyer and judge, and Suzanne Lenglen – the first female tennis celebrity and one of the first international women sports stars.
Not all of them are familiar, but all have been featured individually in different Google Doodle. They are the pioneers from the past who acted as inspiration for lots of successful women today.
