Global internet search giant Google on Tuesday marked the International Women’s Day with one of its special doodles featuring real women rather than animated characters.
The International Women’s Day, celebrated on March 8, is a global event aimed at inspiring women and celebrating their achievements.
Google posted a short video on its home page in which some women are seen sharing their aspirations, completing the sentence “One day I will…”
Liat Ben-Rafael, who co-created the doodle, told Mirror Online it was important to her to feature real women in the video, rather than animated characters, which usually appear in Google doodles.
“International Women’s Day is a celebration of the women who are here today working towards a better future, and in that sense it was important for me to make sure that we celebrate the real women,” she said.
“It’s the unsung heroes, this is what we’re celebrating, so not showing the real women behind this would be a big loss.”
Google users can watch the video on by clicking on the play button on the Google home page in their browsers on March 8.
Users are also encouraged to share their own aspirations on social media, using the hashtag #OneDayIWill.
