Google Doodle Showcases Advances in Gender Equality

By Consultants Review Team Friday, 08 March 2024

In honor of International Women's Day in 2024, Google Doodle celebrates the advancements achieved in the direction of gender equality over time. A group of ladies are seen in the doodle exchanging their "wisdom" while bundled up in a handmade quilt. Doodle artist Sophie Diao created the illustrations for today's doodle.

According to Google, this International Women's Day Doodle features a group of women exchanging knowledge throughout generations inside a patchwork stitched with markers of historical development. "I hope that people will be motivated to spend more time interacting with individuals from diverse generations." When asked what lesson people should take away from the Doodle, Diao responded,

"There's so much to learn from the experiences of those who are experiencing life for the first time, as well as the wonder of those who are coming into their own." On March 8, 1975, the United Nations observed International Women's Day for the first time, as commemorated in the doodle. According to Google's description, "This Doodle celebrates International Women's Day and all the progress that has been made towards gender equality."

It is also said in the description that there were two early protests on March 8—one in New York City and the other in Saint Petersburg. Even though they took place in various years and locations, these protests shared the same objectives of attaining gender equality, which included the right to vote, fair and safe work, and the ability women run for public office.

Today's IWD marches center on subjects including reproductive rights, ending violence against women, and the disparity in pay between men and women of different races. Google went on to say that women who have battled for equality, changed society, and served as role models for others are celebrated today.
