International Women's Day 2016: Google doodles the event with ‘#One day I will’ campaign - Watch!
The doodle features a beautiful video where women and girls from across the world share about their dreams and ambitions.
New Delhi: Internet search giant Google is celebrating the International Women's Day (March 8) on Tuesday with an enduring doodle.
Unlike the previous years, for this year’s International Women’s Day, Google is commemorating the event in a different approach.
Google spoke to 337 women and girls in 13 countries with their cameras, and asked them to complete the sentence, “One day I will…”
Tuesday’s doodle features a beautiful video where women and girls from across the world share about their dreams and ambitions.
Their aspirations were as varied as the women and girls who shared them, from ‘swimming with pigs in the Bahamas’ to the very global ‘giving a voice to those who can’t speak’ and everything in between.
“From toddlers to grandmothers, the women in San Francisco, Rio de Janeiro, Mexico City, Lagos, Moscow, Cairo, Berlin, London, Paris, Jakarta, Bangkok, New Delhi and Tokyo all sparkled with personality”, said Google in a blog post.
Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai and activist Muzoon Almellehan were also featured in the doodle for Internation Women's Day where they said, "One day we will see every girl in school."
Google asked women and girls who are inspired by the doodle to take to Twitter to share their aspirations with the hashtag #OneDayIWill.
Over the years, Doodles have commemorated the achievements of women in science, civil rights, journalism, sports, arts, technology and beyond.
International Women’s Day is a worldwide event that celebrates the social, economic, cultural and political achievement of women. It has been observed since the early 1900s and is now celebrated on March 8 every year.
