On International Women’s Day, the team over at Google Doodle want to hear your life story, and to set the ball rolling, they have showcased illustrated stories by 12 female artists of all backgrounds to share their personal stories in a series of visual narratives.

For Thursday’s doodle, the featured stories represent “a moment, person, or event that has impacted their lives as women. While each artist tells a unique story, the themes are universal, reminding us of how much we often have in common.” The idea was to celebrate the everyday women living around the world.
