Women’s Day!

Over the years, Doodles have marked the achievements of women in
science, civil rights, journalism, sports, arts, technology and beyond.
In Google’s 2016 International Women’s Day Doodle, Google chose to celebrate
the next generation of Doodle-worthy women
the engineers, educators, leaders, movers and shakers of tomorrow.
So they visited 13 cities around the world
and asked 337 girls and women to complete the sentence:
 “One Day I Will…”
Then, they made this video.
  • From San Francisco, Rio de Janeiro, Mexico City, Lagos, Moscow, Cairo, Berlin, London, Paris, Jakarta, Bangkok, New Delhi and Tokyo, the women  met make up a diverse mosaic of personalities, ages and backgrounds. 
  • And their aspirations are just as varied—ranging from the global to the very personal, from discovering more digits of pi to becoming a mother to giving a voice to those who can’t speak.

Google also asked some more familiar figures to participate, including anthropologist Jane Goodall—who wants to discuss the environment with the Pope—and Nobel Prize Winner Malala Yousafzai and activist Muzoon Almellehan, who are working fearlessly toward a future where every girl can go to school. Despite already impressive accomplishments under their belts, these women continue to dream big.
