CAIRO, Mar. 8 (SEE) – Google on Friday celebrated the International Women’s Day. It posted a doodle remembering leaders, artists and inspirational trailblazers from the past 200 years, all happen to be women.
This year the doodle has illustrated famous quotes from 13 inspirational women. There are those who have gone before us, such as pioneering Mexican artist Frida Kahlo and British suffragette Millicent Fawcett, who campaigned for higher education for girls and the right to vote.
The list also includes modern champions who are breaking new ground today. From Indian Olympic boxer Mary Kom, who is the only female boxer to have won a medal in seven world championships, to Chimamanda Adichie, the Nigerian writer whose writing on feminism has been translated into more than 30 languages worldwide.
To bring the words of all these notable women to life, Google commissioned 10 female artists and design studios from around the world to illustrate their quotes.
Among the significant, everlasting quotes, Zaha Hadid, an Iraqi Architect said: I really believe in the idea of the future.
