Happy International Women’s Day!
To celebrate International Women’s Day 2021, Google, through its video doodle, takes us on an journey celebrating a series of firsts in women’s history. Respecting the trailblazers of past, present and future, Google’s doodle highlights female pioneers who challenged the status quo in their times and made ready in education, social rights, science, art and significantly more.
In its image, the portrayal of hands pays homage respect to these heroes who have opened entryways for generations of women and have defeated obstacles of their opportunity to make an enduring legacy.
It commends suffragists, academics, gold medalists, entrepreneurs and more and highlights their accomplishments. While a few firsts accomplish something staggeringly new, it says, others are getting an recognition or right that is long past due.
These firsts remain on the shoulders of countless others—women who established the framework, previously, for the present ways to be at long last opened and glass ceilings broken.
Worldwide Women’s Day, celebrated for over a century now, is seen on March 8 consistently. This day is an image to praise the historic journey women around the planet have taken to better their lives. First celebrated in 1911, the International Women’s Day is held across the world to recognise women’s achievements, raise awareness about ladies’ fairness, entryway for quickened gender parity and fundraise for female-focused charities.
The theme for the current year’s International Women’s Day is ‘Choose To Challenge’. It indicates that a “challenged world is an alert world, and from challenge comes change”. This year, we can all be able to decide to challenge all that has been holding us back, and become better allies.
