One day I will no longer have to write posts about how women are still being discriminated around the world on the basis of their gender.
Google marked International Women’s Day on Tuesday by unveiling a doodle celebrating the diverse and multifaceted aspirations of women and girls around the world.
The scope of their endeavour brought their female-only crew to 13 countries to interview 337 women and girls. They were each asked to complete the sentence, “One day I will…”
Their responses are undoubtedly inspirational.
From the United States:
Google said in a statement they wanted to celebrate the “doodle-worthy women of the future.”
“Even women who are already accomplished aren’t done dreaming,” the company said. The series also features anthropologist and animal rights activist Jane Goodall as well as activist Muzoon Almellehan and Nobel Prize winner Malala Yousafzai.
Celebrated annually on March 8, International Women’s Day’s roots stem from a crowd of women, 15,000-people strong, who marched through the streets of New York City demanding better pay, shorter working hours, and the right to vote.
That, of course, was in 1908. And somehow, there’s still a long way to go.
