International Women`s Day: Google Doodle celebrates stories and voices of 12 female artists

New Delhi: Google on Thursday dedicated the International Women`s Day with a very creative Doodle.

Last year, Doodle reminded of the female pioneers and their vast contributions in multiple fields - from arts to science via eight slide shows.

However, this year's Doodle is different from the ones Google has made so far. Google is celebrating the stories and voices of another group of extraordinary women—the everyday women living all over the world.

Google has reached out to 12 female artists of all backgrounds to share their personal stories in a series of visual narratives.

These 12 female artists, took a different approach to narrate their story. Some Doodles are fictional, some are about family stories while some are very personal account.

“Specifically, each story represents a moment, person, or event that has impacted their lives as women. While each artist tells a unique story, the themes are universal, reminding us of how much we often have in common. We hope that the combined power of words and images help bring these stories to life in a way that invokes feelings of understanding, empathy, and spirit of the day,” Google has said.

On February 28, 1909, the Socialist Party of America observed the earliest Women`s Day in New York.

However, later on March 8, 1917, Women`s Day demonstration sparked the Russian Revolution and the day was eventually declared as national holiday in Russia in 1965.

In 1977, the UN adopted March 8 as the International Women`s Day and since then it celebrates women`s rights and world peace.
