Google celebrates womanhood with doodle

Kaveri Gopalakrishnan, an independent comics maker and illustrator from Bengaluru is one of the artists whose work has been featured in the International Women's Day 2018 Google Doodle.

For the women's day doodle, Google approached 12 female artists from varying backgrounds to share their stories. Each story has its own unique theme, with a wide range of its universality many can relate to these stories.

This year, Google has taken the opportunity to mark the date by showcasing the work of female artists with a series of commemorative Doodle designs - here's the story behind them.

On February 28, 1909, the Socialist Party of America observed the earliest Women's Day in NY.

8th march is marked as the global women's day, so on this occasion, Google has chose to feature the work of 12 women artist across the world through interactive doodles.

Google isn't limiting their celebration to just these 12 stories, though these are the only ones that will be illustrated. "We are celebrating the success of women from all walks of life-who can inspire many more women to follow their dreams", Chadha said.

"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", read a statement from Google.

The theme for International Women's Day 2018 is #PressforProgress. Today's doodle presents in a lovely way the stories of 12 women from all social backgrounds and at the same time encourages women to share their history with theHerStoryOurStory hashtag.
