Search engine giant Google created its latest doodle in order to mark the International Women’s Day, which is celebrated across the globe. Google displayed a moving illustration in the doodle and the International Women’s Day has been marked since the early 1900s.
The doodle on the homepage showed 27 female chromosomes and a video of women from across the globe, including some very noteworthy people like Malala Yousafzai and Camila Batmanghelidjh. Even Dalia Grybauskaitė – the president of Lithuania – made an appearance. The video features music from the Belgian Congolese vocal group Zap Mama.
The doodle was created by the tech giant with a goal of providing a glimpse of what some women have managed to achieve and how they focused on positive things in their lives. The first National Women’s Day was observed in the US on February 28, 1909. The idea of observing the International Women’s Day was suggested by Clara Zetkin – who was a German Social Democrat – during an international conference on women’s rights which was held in Copenhagen.
The day is marked in a variety of ways in different countries. In order to celebrate the International Women’s Day, the UK male presenters will be banished from BBC Radio 1 during this weekend.
