The internet search engine giant, Google has put up a slideshow doodle to celebrate the International Women's Day - 2017 depicting `some of the female pioneers who paved the way to where we are today'.
doodle features a little girl whose grandmother tells her the best
bedtime story ever: the collected tales of 13 remarkable women. She
then visits these women in her imagination, taking us along on a
journey that spans centuries and circles the globe," informs Google
while urging the viewers to visit Google Arts & Culture to
continue the celebration and explore photographs, videos, and more of
the heroines featured in the doodle.
"Although some of the women showcased in today's doodle aren't
household names, each made a mark in her own way. They pursued a
range of professions and passions and hailed from an array of
backgrounds and countries. In fact, all of these women have been
featured in individual doodles in the past, but often only in their
countries of origin. So today we're taking the opportunity to share
their stories with everyone."
has also been reminded that Women's Day started in 1908, when a group
of women gathered in New York City to demand fair pay, better working
conditions, and the right to vote. Their commitment to equality
sparked similar events in other countries. In 1911, the first
official International Women's Day rallies were held in Austria,
Denmark, Germany, and Switzerland. The day is now observed in a
myriad of countries and a multitude of ways.
